New content focus: AAP Grand Rounds

AAP Grand Rounds offers readers a broad picture of looming health issues in medical research as well as new science not yet encountered in their everyday practice of pediatric medicine.

In January, Grand Rounds will have a new design and a much anticipated content refocus on timelier research reviews on popular pediatric subspecialties like adolescent medicine, critical care, developmental and behavioral, emergency medicine, endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology-oncology, hospital pediatrics, infectious diseases, neonatology, nephrology, orthopedics and pulmonology.

The editorial board includes academic experts who will analyze the research and identify pearls that readers can quickly review and share with colleagues.

AAP Grand Rounds offers readers the opportunity to earn continuing medical education credit. AAP members can save on already reduced subscriptions. Pre-order 2017 AAP Grand Rounds at Organizations can order a site license or site license with print at
