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 models of care. Grand Rounds are presented by guest faculty from all across the country. We warmly welcome guest speakers from diverse backgrounds with knowledge in diversity, equity, and inclusion as part of our residency program’s cultural competency curriculum.

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. CME credits are available for eligible healthcare providers through the UW-Madison Interprofessional Continuing Education Partnership.
