Grand Rounds

Expand your knowledge

Whether you're a practising pediatrician or a resident, you’ll find plenty of value in attending our Grand Rounds. Accredited by the Royal College as a Category 1 Continuing Professional Development activity, these Rounds cover a wide range of basic and clinical science topics relevant to pediatrics.

Although all members of the IWK community are invited, the presentations, which feature a mix of faculty, residents and visiting professors, are developed with pediatricians in mind.
