Yale Child Study Center Grand Rounds

A weekly forum for Yale Child Study Center (YCSC) faculty, staff, and affiliates, Grand Rounds meetings offer multidisciplinary opportunities to come together and learn about a variety of topics relevant to the mental health of children, adolescents, families, and communities. YCSC has the oldest Grand Rounds series exclusively dedicated to topics in child psychiatry and allied disciplines. Topics range from the molecular to the societal and all points in between; presenters have a wide array of professional backgrounds and expertise.

In addition to the special named lectures that are typically part of Grand Rounds, some regular themes include the following:

  • Compassionate Care Rounds: A forum for caregivers from diverse disciplines to discuss some of the emotional and social challenges inherent to patient care, as well as explore the roles of teamwork and patient/family communication in enhancing quality of care. These rounds are intended to promote compassionate healthcare so that patients and their professional caregivers relate to one another in a way that provides hope to the patient, support to caregivers, and sustenance to the healing process.
  • Applied Science from Bench to Bedside: These sessions connect cutting-edge scientific content and evidence-based best practices to clinical application relevant to everyday patient care.
  • Social Justice: A goal of these meetings is to promote a society that challenges injustice and values diversity, aiming to keep us attuned to and respectful of one another, in the workplace as in our clinical encounters. They also aim to ensure that no one is discriminated against, nor their welfare and well-being constrained or prejudiced on the basis of gender, sexuality, religion, political affiliation, age, race, belief, disability, location, social class, socioeconomic circumstances, or any other characteristic of background or group membership.
