Grand Rounds Entry Guidelines

Welcome to Adventures of a Funky Heart!

I’m proud to be the host of Grand Rounds on June 15, and here is what you will need to know to submit your post:

There is no theme. Anything goes, but remember: Grand Rounds is a collection of the best medical writing on the internet. These standards have existed since the first Grand Rounds in 2004, so let’s not break them!

Grand Rounds is open to all, but all posts MUST relate to some facet of the medical field. To submit, send me

1) The title of your post

2) The URL of your post

3) Your blog URL

4) The name you post under (i.e. Dr. Jekyll, Dr. Pepper, Dr. Doctor, etc.)

Place this information in an email with the words “Grand Rounds Submission” in the subject line, and send it to me at

That’s it! Tune in on Tuesday, June 15, 2010 for the Funky Heart! Edition of Grand Rounds!

Your Host;

    do you have any examples from previous years?

    • Steve Says:

      Yes! Click THIS LINK and go all the way to the bottom of the page. The list is a chronological list of previous editions of Grand Rounds, which began in 2004. Some of those early blogs/links may not exist any more, so for the most recent ones go all the way to the bottom.

    Thanks! So, looked over a few and wanted to double check a few things. 1) Is this just for physicians/nurses? 2) Are we to write a new post, or is this just to submit a link for any medical-themed post that we’ve written? 3) Do you prefer the posts be technical in nature, or are you looking for patients’ thoughts on their own healthcare experiences, or both? On my blog I’ve written both before. I’m a patient (cardiac), not a doctor, but I do have an MPH.

    • Steve Says:

      1) Just for physicians/nurses? No! Grand Rounds is open to any blog or post with a health or health care theme.
      2) New Post? Any Link? Traditionally, you submit your best work in the time frame. Since Grand Rounds appears every two weeks, most submissions were originally posted in the last two weeks.
      3) Technical or patient experience? Submissions should be aimed at a general audience. The idea is to introduce the general public to good medical writing.

      Hope this helps!
