Grand Rounds 2015-16


Goal of Psychiatry Grand Rounds:  To provide the highest-quality continuing education for clinical staff, house officers, and medical students within the department and other interested persons in the medical community.

Mission Statement:  To present unbiased, scientifically-based information relevant to the practice of Psychiatry.

The UNMC Psychiatry Department in conjunction with the Creighton University Psychiatry Department presents grand rounds on alternating weeks (UNMC on the 2nd and 4th weeks of the month, CU on the 1st and 3rd weeks of the month) at 12:00PM. Presenters are selected from our faculty and residents, and from around the country, with topics selected based on audience interest. Deliberate effort is made to avoid commercial bias in all grand rounds presentations.
