Grand Rounds Schedule

The Continuing Medical Education program at Children's of Alabama provides educational opportunities for pediatric providers and specialists throughout the southeast. Our goal is to offer practical and dynamic CME courses on a variety of pediatric health care topics. As the primary pediatric teaching affiliate of the University of Alabama at Birmingham Medical School, we have more than 200 specialists conducting research and clinical trials on the cutting edge of medicine.

Grand Rounds are held each Thursday at 12 noon in the Bradley Lecture Center, 4th Floor of the Children's Center for Research & Innovation

CME credit for viewing a Grand Rounds presentation while it is in progress is available by following the prompts on the Grand Rounds weekly webcast beginning at 11:50 a.m. on Thursdays.

Children's of Alabama is accredited by the Medical Association of the State of Alabama to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Each month will be updated with new schedule including title and learning objectives. 

Please submit suggestions on how we can make improvements to the CME Program to help better serve.
