About EyeRounds and Ophthalmology Grand Rounds

Ophthalmology Grand Round and Eye Rounds is a service of the University of Iowa Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences in Iowa City, Iowa.

History of Ophthalmology Grand Rounds at The University of Iowa

In 1925, Cecil Starling O’Brien, MD, was hired as the head of the newly autonomous Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Iowa. Dr. O'Brien started the tradition of daily morning rounds to teach residents at the bedside. Grand rounds at Iowa evolved from bedside to the clinic, and, under the guidance of then Department Head, Thomas A. Weingeist, PhD, MD, to the Braley Auditorium.

Grand rounds are held Monday through Thursday from 8:00 to 8:45 a.m. and are invaluable learning experiences for students, residents, and fellows. During grand rounds, interesting, difficult, and classic presentations of ophthalmic diseases are discussed. Under the direction of Department Head, Keith D. Carter, MD, rounds continue to be as strong a tradition today as they were in 1925.

This website contains a growing resource for students, residents, physicians, and patients. Over time, the site has gained momentum. They receive thousands of hits per day from over 40 countries.
