Grand rounds are an important teaching tool of medical education, consisting of presenting the medical problems and treatment of a particular patient (or population of patients) to an audience consisting of doctors, residents, and medical students.   Grand rounds help doctors and other healthcare professionals keep up to date in important evolving areas which may be outside of their core practice.
Grand rounds have evolved, with most sessions being more like lectures, and with audiences expanding to include research professionals in the academic, government, industry, and advocacy domains.
The Grand Rounds featured here, as part of a shared forum of the NIH HCS Collaboratory and PCORnet, provide insightful updates focused on innovative, alternative, streamlined approaches to the conduct of pragmatic clinical trials.
