Continuing Medical Education (CME) activities offered by NIH are jointly sponsored in partnership with The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.  [disclaimer]

Activity Description
The weekly Clinical Center Grand Rounds provide a mechanism for presentations on state-of-the-art discoveries.

Who Should Attend
All physicians, allied health professionals, and non-clinical scientists are invited to attend the Clinical Center Grand Rounds Series.

After attending the activity, participants will be able to (1) define options and alternatives that will guide clinical practice, (2) evaluate practical information presented about clinical research principles based on state-of-the-art scientific discovery and clinical advances, and (3) analyze information and opportunities to increase and improve collaboration among investigators.

Accreditation Statement
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint sponsorship of The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine designates this live activity for 1 credit per session for a maximum of 44 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s). Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Policy on Speaker and Provider Disclosure
It is the policy of The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the NIH that the speaker and provider disclose real or apparent conflicts of interest relating to the topics of this educational activity, and also disclose discussions of unlabeled/unapproved uses of drugs or devices during their presentation(s). The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine OCME has established policies in place that will identify and resolve all conflicts of interest prior to this educational activity.

Videocast Information
The Center for Information Technology (CIT) makes special NIH events, seminars, and lectures available to viewers on the VideoCast web site. VideoCasting is the method of electronically streaming digitally encoded video and audio data from a server to a client. Streaming files are not downloaded, but rather are broadcast in a manner similar to television broadcasts . The videos are processed by a compression program into a streaming format and delivered in a staggered fashion to minimize impact upon the network and maximize the experience of the content for the viewer. When users request a streaming file they will receive an initial burst of data after a short delay (file latency). While content is being viewed, the streaming server machine and software continues to "stream" data in such a manner that the viewer experiences no break in the content. Questions: Call 301-496-2563. Viewers from outside the NIH network can download the lastest free tools:

Reasonable Accommodations
Sign language interpreters will be provided. Individuals with disabilities who need reasonable accommodation to participate in this event should contact the Clinical Center Office of Communications, Patient Recruitment and Public Liaison at 301-496-2563. TTY users, please call through the Federal Relay Service at 1-800-877-8339.
