Concept of Online Grand Rounds

With the ever changing technology, now even medical professional are taking on to the world of online medical education. Here we will discuss about "Online Grand Rounds", a new exciting concept on the internet.

A Grand Round is a particular kind of community with similar likes and interests. There are many kinds of blogs and websites, and they contain articles on many kinds of topics. Grand Rounds typically collect together links pointing to articles on a particular topic. A Grand Round is like a journal. It has a title, a topic, editors, contributors, and an audience. Editions of the Grand Round typically come out on a regular basis (e.g. every monday, or on the first of the month). Each edition is a special article that consists of links to all the contributions that have been submitted, often with the editors opinions or remarks.

If there is a Grand Round for a topic you are interested in, following that Grand Round is a great way to learn what other medical professionals are saying about that topic.
