Series Overview:

The Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and ViralEd are proud to announce the extension of this ground-breaking CME activity. Mirroring academic grand rounds programs, these CME-certified sessions combine traditional academic grand rounds with the innovation and convenience of telemedicine. The HIV Grand Rounds from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania is delivered live via the Internet every Thursday at 12:00pm Eastern Time for each week of the month except the 4th week when a re-broadcast of the Viral Hepatitis Grand Rounds from the previous day.  All webcasts are available for on-demand viewing immediately following a broadcast.

Presentations cover the most important and current topics in HIV/AIDS and are delivered by the top experts in the field. They are designed to be immediately relevant to practicing HIV clinicians and many are case-based. The final 10 minutes of each one-hour educational activity consists of a live question and answer period, with the presenting faculty member available to answer questions asked by attendees using the webinar interface. These weekly grand rounds are intended to provide clinicians with convenient and easily accessible knowledge and clinical skills they need to provide the best medical care for their HIV-positive patients.

Each session may be broadcast via your Internet connection in your conference room or auditorium for large groups to view, or individually to your personal computer at your convenience. Simply register at www.viraled.com/grandrounds for easy access.

Peer review of all content was conducted for all faculty presentations whose disclosure information provided to the Penn Office of CME was found to contain relationships that created a conflict of interest relative to the topic of their presentation. In addition, all faculty were instructed to provide balanced, scientifically rigorous and evidence-based presentations.
