Do you have a challenging patient in your caseload? 

Would you like to discuss this case with a few expert panelists who would offer you advice regarding assessment and treatment ideas? 

Would you like to receive a generous honorarium for sharing this case with your peers?

If so, please consider being a case presenter for Grand Rounds.

Historically, Grand Rounds was a formal meeting at which physicians discussed the clinical case of one or more patients. The National Orthopaedic Division has developed a Grand Rounds virtual platform to educate its members.  Audience participation is encouraged, and the facilitator attempts to include audience questions to the presenter and panelists. 

If you are unable to attend the live 90-minute presentation, the recordings are available at PD Marketplace.
