The Grand Rounds are available via Zoom or a hybrid of in person and Zoom.  The sessions are also recorded for later viewing.

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.

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 current and past Grand Rounds sessions through the departmental website.  Recorded sessions will usually be available within 24 hours. Recordings are password protected – for password reminder, contact Andi Martin.

SEPTEMBER 2023 to JUNE 2024

In order for you to see what is on offer, not just in our Department, but in other FoM Departments we will be sharing the BC Grand Rounds Calendar instead of the table format you've seen for many years.  This way you will be able to view all sessions across the Province from all specialties.  If you only wish to see OBGYN topics you can filter for those.

Please click on BC Grand Rounds Calendar and go to the relevant month.  All OBGYN rounds have a pink circle beside them.  You can also filter just for OBGYN by clicking on the Select Area of Focus - from here you can tick just OBGYN or OBGYN and other Departments of interest (just click in the tick boxes for each one).  You can also view rounds by week or by month by selecting the relevant buttons.

If you have any feedback on this new process, please feel free to email the Administrative Director.

Recordings are password protected - for password reminder, contact Andi Martin.
