Lecturer addressing an audience

The NYU Langone Medical Center's Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and the NYU Child Study Center offer one of the few existing Grand Rounds programs in child and adolescent psychiatry in the U.S. For those outside the medical field, Grand Rounds are a series of lectures sponsored by a department at an academic medical center for the continuing education of its faculty and trainees. Experts from around the world are brought in to address a topic of their research or specialization, which they share with the assembled audience.

The NYU Child Study Center is pleased to make videos of a select number of its 2011-2012 Grand Rounds presentations available online, in order to share this invaluable information on child mental health with a wider audience. While these lectures are intended primarily for doctors, clinicians, and researchers, others who are concerned with children's health may find them of great interest, including parents and school professionals. Should you not have time to watch a lecture in its entirety, many of the presenters also spoke more informally with aboutourkids.org. Short video excerpts of these interviews, which cover some of the material contained in the formal Grand Rounds presentations, are included for many of the speakers.
