In an effort to share its experience and initiate discussions on management of common issues related to COVID-19, AIIMS New Delhi in conjunction with Niti Aayog and Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India launches National Clinical Grand Rounds (CGR) on COVID-19.
These CGRs will include presentation of clinical cases by physicians directly involved in their management. Challenges faced in the management will be discussed by a panel of eminent experts from across the country and outside India. Each case discussion will be followed by a short presentation on clinically relevant topics in managing COVID-19.
