Emergency Medicine Grand Rounds is a weekly multidisciplinary and interprofessional conference series designed to improve a participant’s ability to practice emergency medicine by enhancing knowledge in clinical care, healthcare research, medical education, public health, and innovation implementation. We warmly welcome speakers from diverse backgrounds with knowledge in diversity, equity and inclusion as part of our residency program’s cultural competency curriculum.

Grand Rounds are presented by guest faculty from around the country. Departmental faculty, fellows, residents, and emergency department providers and staff benefit from these clinically relevant lectures and are eligible to receive CME credit for attending live sessions through the UW-Madison Interprofessional Continuing Education Partnership.

Grand Round lectures take place Thursday mornings, typically from 10:00-11:00 a.m. CST, either via Zoom or at our academic office on the UW Hospitals and Clinics medical campus. For questions, please visit ICEP’s website.

In recognition of the efforts being taken to develop innovative models of care, care for unique patients, and advance the specialty through research, the Wisconsin chapter of the American College of Emergency Physicians (WACEP) partners with the Departments of Emergency Medicine at both the University of Wisconsin and the Medical College of Wisconsin to host the annual Wisconsin Emergency Medicine Research Forum during its Spring Symposium.
