The UNMC Department of Dermatology is working to create several avenues for continuing medical education (CME) for dermatologists and primary care providers across the state of Nebraska.
Monthly Grand Rounds
The Department of Dermatology hosts monthly Grand Rounds at UNMC/Nebraska Medicine to evaluate and review patients with disorders of the skin that are rare, difficult to diagnose or challenging to manage. This conference is an integral part of the clinical and educational missions of the department and is open to community physicians, medical students, residents, fellows and faculty.
We are pleased to announce that our Grand Rounds this year will be virtual. We will bring a wide range of experts from around the country to our Nebraska dermatology community through Zoom. Please "save the date" for the first Tuesday evenings from September through May. The lecture will be from 6-7 p.m. and virtual cases discussions from 7-8 p.m. for a total of 2 CME hours.
