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

The University of Washington School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 27 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. (Each session is 1.0 credit.)

Laboratory Medicine Grand Rounds runs fall, winter and spring quarters and is free and open to all. Sign in is required for CME or CE credit.

The primary purpose of Laboratory Medicine Grand Rounds is to provide up-to-date information on laboratory testing for diagnosis, prognosis, and monitoring diseases. This Continuing Medical Education (CME) accredited series covers test ordering and interpretation as well as issues related to quality improvement in clinical laboratory services. The course also encompasses current research and trends in laboratory medicine and in medicine more generally, and considers how these trends are likely to impact the future practice of medicine. Lastly, the course includes lectures on general topics in medicine that provide up-to-date information in areas where laboratory testing is of particular importance.
