Generally held on the third Wednesday of the month, these rounds are hosted at one of the fully-affiliated hospitals and videoconferenced to the other fully-affiliated hospitals plus various community-affiliated hospitals and clinical practice sites. City Wide Medical Grand Rounds (CWMGR) are also generally available live or on-demand as a webcast, at the presenter’s discretion. Beyond traditional approaches to integrate interactivity such as soliciting questions from attendees in the room, our CWMGR encourages a broader dialogue through its use of social media and the #CWMGR Twitter hashtag and emailed questions.
One CWMGR event each year is named after former Sir John and Lady Eaton Chair of Medicine, Dr. Wendy Levinson. The Levinson Lecture recognizes a senior member of the University of Toronto, Department of Medicine, for his or her outstanding career contributions to medicine, encompassing research, education, leadership or extraordinary contributions to patient care.
