CME Information

The NIH Clinical Center Grand Rounds is a Continuing Medical Education (CME) activity offered by the NIH Clinical Center Office of Clinical Research Training and Medical Education (OCRTME) with the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine as the CME provider.

The Clinical Center Grand Rounds CME provider, the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, has updated their CME recording keeping to a new, user friendly, CloudCME system. With the new CloudCME record keeping system, attendees will no longer have to "sign in" or manually complete a "CME Self-Report Credit Form" to obtain CME credit for attending. Attendees will also no longer have to wait until the end of the academic year to receive their transcripts/certificates for proof of CME credits earned. With the new CloudCME system, attendees can receive credit for attending an NIH CME activity instantly by simply sending a text message from their mobile phone to the Hopkins CME phone number: (443) 541-5052.

* To receive credit for attending an NIH CME activity, each attendee must:

  1. Register with the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Office of CME. You will provide your name, email address, and cell phone number. If you have attended a NIH CME activity in the past, and requested CME for your attendance, then your email address should be registered with Hopkins CME.

    *Note: The Hopkins CloudCME website is a third party website which is not managed by the NIH. The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine privacy policies will apply, and they have been reviewed and approved by the NIH Clinical Center Privacy Office. View the Johns Hopkins Privacy Policy.

  2. Next text your email address to the Hopkins CME phone number, (443) 541-5052, which will pair your mobile phone with your Hopkins CME account that had been created/ used on past CME Self-Report Credit Forms.

  3. Each NIH Clinical Center Grand Rounds has been assigned an "activity code." This code is displayed on a PowerPoint slide shown at the beginning and the end of each lecture, and announced by the introducer. It is also listed on the first page of the evaluation form for each lecture.

  4. After you have attended, you will text the assigned "activity code" to the Hopkins CME phone number at (443) 541-5052 to receive CME credit. Once the text message is sent, your account is updated to reflect the CME credit earned.

    *Important Note: The activity code is only valid 15 minutes prior to the start of the lecture until 8 pm after the lecture. Afterwards, the code becomes inactive and you will not be able to submit your attendance for CME credit for that particular activity.

If you have any questions on how to use the new CloudCME recording keeping, please contact the Clinical Center's CME Coordinator, Ms. Rita Stevens, by email at or by phone at 301-435-6618.

NIH Videocast Information

The Center for Information Technology (CIT) makes special NIH events, seminars, and lectures available to viewers on the VideoCast website. VideoCasting is the method of electronically streaming digitally encoded video and audio data from a server to a client. Streaming files are not downloaded, but rather are broadcast in a manner similar to television broadcasts. The videos are processed by a compression program into a streaming format and delivered in a staggered fashion to minimize impact upon the network and maximize the experience of the content for the viewer. When users request a streaming file they will receive an initial burst of data after a short delay (file latency). While content is being viewed, the streaming server machine and software continues to "stream" data in such a manner that the viewer experiences no break in the content. For questions regarding NIH Videocast, please call 301-496-0080. Viewers from outside the NIH network can download the latest free tools:
