University of Nebraska Medical Center


Our program provides a range of educational opportunities in clinical and research settings for students, residents, fellows and staff.

Clinical- and research-oriented conferences are offered Mondays and Thursdays. Other educational opportunities are offered by both the Cardiovascular Medicine Grand Rounds (see schedule below) and Internal Medicine Grand Rounds, which frequently draw well-known speakers from outside institutions.

Cardiovascular Medicine Grand Rounds

Grand Rounds originated as part of residency training to present clinical problems and focus on current or interesting cases. Our division's Grand Rounds are an integral component of medical education, teaching new information and enhancing clinical reasoning skills.
