Chicago - 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Firm Rounds is one of the most unique multidisciplinary conferences hosted by the Department of Pediatrics, taking place Tuesday mornings from 8:00 - 9:00 a.m. in the eleventh-floor conference center at Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago. Each week, faculty from each of the pediatric disciplines discuss and debate a single recent case from the clinics or wards. Trainees are able to sit back and learn from the experts as they generate a differential, present cutting-edge evidence-based data, and work through the medical decision making process. Transcriptions of FIRM are published monthly in the journal Pediatric Annals.
Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
