The Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology holds a variety of rounds at BC Women’s Hospital, St. Paul’s Hospital, Surrey Memorial Hospital, and Vancouver Hospital and Health Centre. The Grand Rounds will be video conferenced around the province as well as being recorded for later viewing.

In April/May 2020 the Department transitioned from VC Anywhere (webex) to Zoom to distribute Academic Rounds.

There are three distinct components available to you as part of Distributed Academic Rounds:

BC Rounds Calendar – search through an online calendar containing upcoming Grand Rounds sessions across multiple departments and find ones that are of interest to you. We will still maintain our own calendar that you are familiar with (below) too.

Zoom  – join live Grand Rounds found in the BC Rounds Calendar from any internet-enabled location using your laptop/desktop. Interact with the presenter and other participants via microphone, camera, and/or chat. Simply click on the link and follow the link to join a session remotely.

For those new to this please follow these golden rules:

  • Ensure you have downloaded the Zoom app for your laptop/desktop. Further information on how to set up and use Zoom here.  
  • Always have your microphone on mute when you join a Zoom session and stay muted during the session.
  • Login at least 5-10 minutes before the session starts just in case you have any technical difficulties you need to resolve.
  • In order to claim CME Credits you must complete the evaluation form directly after the session.

Med Video on Demand Play Recording– view video recordings of past Grand Rounds sessions through the departmental website.

Recorded sessions will be available the Tuesday after the rounds presentations.

Rounds are classified as a self-approved group learning activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and the College of Family Physicians of Canada.
