Grand rounds: Meetings at which physicians discuss the clinical case of one or more patients. Grand rounds originated as part of residency training, wherein new information was taught and clinical reasoning skills were enhanced. Grand rounds today are an integral component of medical education. They present clinical problems in medicine by focusing on current or interesting cases (www.medterms.com).
