Accreditation & CME

Neurology Grand Rounds, a weekly one-hour continuing medical educational (CME) seminar held on Thursdays, covers a wide variety of clinicaland basic science topics. From September through June, Grand Rounds consists of special lectures from faculty and guest speakers. Faculty and guest speakers, usually nationally recognized in their field of expertise, discuss the latest clinical and bench research developments.

During the months of July and August, Grand Rounds conducts a Summer Lectures Series which emphasizes basic lectures in the neurosciences that are held for two hours each Thursday.

Responsibility for case presentations is met by the Neurology residents while rotating with the four affiliated hospitals. The presentations are usually didactic in format with residents reviewing the literature and preparing handouts. Grand Rounds are recorded for residents who cannot attend. A file is kept of conference handouts. A core syllabus of clinical and basic science seminars are scheduled as a three-year series, so that each resident is exposed to a wide ranging set of topics during their three year residency.

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