University of Nebraska Medical Center

Grand Rounds

The UNMC Psychiatry Grand Rounds series is designed to provide high-quality continuing education for clinical staff, house officers, medical students, and other trainees for the department and other interested parties on campus.

The mission of the grand rounds is to present unbiased, scientifically-based information relevant to the practice of Psychiatry.

Grand rounds are offered at noon twice a month, typically on the second and fourth Wednesdays. Presenters are selected from our faculty, trainees, and experts around the country on topical subjects. Deliberate effort is made to avoid commercial bias in all grand rounds presentations.

Grand rounds may be live from the fourth floor of Poynter Hall. (Most events can observed by Zoom, starting 10 minutes before the scheduled start.)

The University of Nebraska Medical Center Center for Continuing Education is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The University of Nebraska Medical Center Center for Continuing Education designates this live activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
