Psychiatry Grand Rounds are open to the faculty, staff, and students of the Johns Hopkins Hospital and School of Medicine, the Bloomberg School of Public Health, and their professional visitors.

Grand Rounds in the Johns Hopkins Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences began in 1913. The original format, which continues today, begins with the presentation of a patient case history and then an examination of the patient. Today, a resident begins the Rounds by presenting the case. The patient, who has volunteered to participate in the Rounds, is typically from one of the inpatient services, outpatient clinics, or is a private patient of a faculty member. The patient is interviewed by a senior faculty member, often by the Department Director. The faculty member invited to lead Rounds that week then gives a lecture which is followed by discussion with members of the audience. The week's lecture slides are posted afterwards on the Grand Rounds Schedule
We observe confidentiality and traditional etiquette for Grand Rounds, including professional attire and demeanor. Eating and drinking are not permitted.
Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits (1.5) are available to faculty who sign in.
