Grand Rounds is available for Continuing Education.
ALL Continuing Education hours for PHGR are issued online through the CDC/ATSDR Training & Continuing Education Online system. If you have questions, email or call Learner Support at 1-800-418-7246(1-800-41TRAIN).

Those who attend PHGR either in person, Envision, IPTV, or “web on demand” and who wish to receive Continuing Education must complete the online seminar evaluation. Thirty days from the initial seminar the course number will change to WD1640 and will be available for continuing education until January 21, 2014. The course code for PHGR is PHGR10.

Target Audience: Physicians, nurses, epidemiologists, pharmacists, veterinarians, certified health education specialists, laboratorians, others


  1. List key measures of burden of disease involving morbidity, mortality, and/or cost.
  2. Describe evidence-based preventive interventions and the status of their implementations.
  3. Identify one key prevention science research gap.
  4. Name one key indicator by which progress and meeting prevention goals is measured.

CE certificates can be printed from your computer immediately upon completion of your online evaluation. A cumulative transcript of all CDC/ATSDR CE’s obtained through the TCE Online System will be maintained for each user. We hope that this will assist CDC staff and other public health professionals to fulfill the requirements for their professional licenses and certificates.
