Stanford Dermatology Grand Rounds Information for Doctors
We are delighted that you have an interest in participating in Dermatology Grand Rounds at Stanford University Medical Center. Grand Rounds is a part of the training and educational mission of the Department of Dermatology at Stanford University School of Medicine. The mission of the department is teaching physicians about dermatology as well as providing patient care and research on dermatological diseases. Grand Rounds is a weekly patient care and education conference attended by University and community physicians, dermatologists, and medical trainees. Patients with disorders that are rare, difficult to treat, or challenging to diagnose are discussed. You may benefit from participating in this conference as many physicians will be carefully considering the cases presented. You may learn about new approaches to diagnosis and treatment of your condition.
Dermatology Grand Rounds is an educational opportunity for you and your patients as well as our medical community. If you would like to refer a patient to Grand Rounds, you will be expected to prepare your patient for Grand Rounds, to accompany your patient, and to provide feedback to your patient based on the discussion at Grand Rounds. It is not the responsibility of Stanford Hospital and Clinics, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital or the Department of Dermatology to communicate with the patient/participant any information that is discussed or obtained during or as a result of Grand Rounds.
Please inform your patient that Grand Rounds viewing is from 7:20am - 8:00am. They should arrive early in order to register, to review the consent forms, and to be photographed. Patient viewing usually begins at 7:30am.
Patient viewing at the Stanford Medicine Outpatient Center in Redwood City is in the 4th Floor Dermatology Clinic.

Consent to Photograph - Your patient may or may not allow us to take photographs. Please review the consent with them as we think the educational value of Grand Rounds increases when we photograph your patient’s condition. Your patient may still participate in Grand Rounds even if they do not want their skin condition photographed. We will be using the photographs for teaching, research and for improving the whole Grand Rounds experience. If your patient agrees to allow us to photograph them, we will have them sign the consent when we meet them before Grand Rounds. Please do not ask them to sign the consent. We will have additional copies of the letter, map and photograph consent available if you need more. You may pick them up at Grand Rounds. Note that this form is not available in pdf form. You and your patient will be provided with the form to sign at Grand Rounds.
