The tradition of Medical Grand Rounds at Johns Hopkins can be traced back to William Osler, the first professor of medicine, beginning in 1889. Although for a long time they have been amphitheater rounds, not bedside rounds, the patient and specific clinical problems have always been the focus of discussion.
The objective is to demonstrate the best in the analysis and treatment of difficult clinical problems in real-life patients who often tell their own story. The patient remains our link between current research and modern therapeutics.
