What are Grand Rounds?

Originally, the word “Grand Rounds” was a hospital term used when doctors were attending to their patients alongside a group of student/trainee doctors – generally to discuss and pass on medical knowledge. This served an educational purpose for students to learn while the doctors made their “rounds” through the hospital.

Our version of Grand Rounds is the modern-equivalent – associate doctors/ophthalmologists who operate out of ESA’s suites present optometry-related education and news, hosted through our series of seminar/webinar events, to support the Continuing Professional Development – (CPD) –  of medical professionals. CPD Points are determined/allocated based on the learning objectives assigned to each presentation and/or accompanying assessments.

**Please note the CPD points allocated for each of our events, as they are subject to change.


Locations: Events are usually held in proximity to one of our four consulting suites (Doncaster, East Melbourne, Malvern and Vermont South), or via webinars through Loghic Connect. Details are sent out via an invitation to our subscribers and are posted under the  ‘Upcoming Events’ tab of our website. In addition to our website, event details and updates can be found on the ESA Facebook page and LinkedIn pages.

ESA Event Structure:  Our Grand Rounds typically include one or two speakers per evening, with presentations that include the latest research, relevant to the chosen clinical topic/s, as well as two or three case-studies that discuss interesting and unique features. Past event/topic examples include: cataract surgery, ICG angiography, B scans, ERGs and clinical trials.

Discussion and interchange of ideas and observations is encouraged, and the formal component of each session will always meet CPD requirements. ESA aims to manage Grand Round events sessions efficiently, and they are generally held at the end of a full working day, as we are mindful that most attendees are usually unavailable during the day.
