How to get CME credit for Virtual Grand Rounds

Starting in January 2021, you can receive Continued Med Education (CME) credits in one of two ways.

  • “Live Credit” is available upon entry (until 8:15am) onto the ZOOM GR where your FULL NAME is clearly shown. (If logging in on your phone or other device please change your name so that is recognizable).
  • “Enduring CME Credit” is available on our previously recorded GRs up to 3 months from the presentation date. (Recordings will be posted within 24 hours of the original presentation)
    • First, click on and watch the presentation you’d like credit for.
    • Then click the blue “Obtain Enduring CME Credit” link to the right of the recording link.
    • You will be taken to a login page (first time users will need to create a login/password). After self-enrolling into the specific talk, you’ll
      complete an attestation or answer question(s) to claim your Enduring CME Credit.


The last Grand Rounds of the academic year will take place on May 26, 2021. We will resume Grand Rounds on September 1, 2021.
