The Grand Rounds Seminar Series is jointly sponsored by the University of Melbourne Department of Paediatrics, Murdoch Childrens Research Institute and the Royal Children's Hospital. It is the flagship educational meeting of the Melbourne Children's campus, and takes place each week, at lunchtime on Wednesdays. These meetings are designed to be informative and dynamic. Over the course of the year, the series is expected to broaden our experiences and understanding of child and adolescent health, regardless of whether we come from a clinical, research, academic, or other background.
The RCH Grand Rounds Seminar Series runs from February through to November each year. Presentations are held in the Ella Latham Lecture Theatre from 12.30pm sharp to 1.30pm and are preceded by a light lunch at 12.15pm.
