Wednesdays at 8:00 a.m.
Duke University Hospital, Room #2003
Our goal is to continue to educate physicians on up-to-date clinical aspects of neuroscience, as well as its research and basic science underpinnings. In addition, we use this forum for open discussion, with both faculty and house staff participating, to discuss treatment options for individuals and groups of patients.
We plan to continue to suggest to the faculty that they speak about topics pertinent to the group, without repetition, and will continue to suggest specific topics that are suggested through our evaluations completed by the participants.
Clinical Neuroscience Grand Rounds is an important avenue to disseminate information to the clinical neuroscientists concerning important new matters relative to the patient's care in the hospital.
The Clinical Neuroscience Grand Rounds also serves to strengthen the bonds between Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Neuropathology through this weekly interactive conference.
Please send your topic (two months prior to presenting) or to report any changes e-mail Gina Hawley. Please note all changes should be made between attendings.
