Grand Rounds 2021-22


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 Department of Psychiatry hosts grand rounds twice a month (typically the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays) at 12:00 PM.
