50th Anniversary Grand Rounds

Past Rounds

All healthcare professionals are invited to CC Grand Rounds. This is part of the Grand Rounds Series (September 1, 2004 - August 31, 2005). Participants will be provided with, (1) options and alternatives that will guide clinical practice, (2) practical information about clinical research principles based on state-of-the-art information about scientific discovery and clinical advances, and (3) information and opportunities to increase and improve collaboration among investigators. Lectures will be held in the Lipsett Amphitheater, First Floor, Clinic Building (ACRF), Clinical Center, National Institutes of Health, 9000 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, MD. Parking is very limited on the NIH campus, but Medical Center Metro Station on the Red line is within a 10-minute walk of the Clinical Center. Metro buses J2 and J3, and Montgomery County Ride-On Bus #35 all stop right at the Medical Center Metro. If you must drive, please park in the overflow lot (see map and directions on back). This is Mid-Pike Plaza, located north of NIH at Montrose Road and Rockville Pike. This lot is served by shuttle buses, which run to the Clinical Center every 20 minutes. Parking in the P-3 level of the ACRF garage is intended for patients, their visitors, and staff members with handicap red-parking stickers. The National Institutes of Health/Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences (NIH/FAES) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The NIH/FAES designates this educational activity for 1 credit per session up to a maximum of 40 category 1 credits toward the AMA Physician's Recognition Award. Each physician should claim only those credits that he/she actually spent in the activity. Reasonable Accommodations: If you require special accommodations to participate, please provide information about your requirements to Clinical Center Communications at 301-496-2563/TTY 301-402-1242 at least five business days in advance of lecture.
