Grand Rounds Presentations

Each week, faculty members and students in the department of Neurology meet for grand rounds lectures on evolving areas and new trends in their field.  Below is a list of previous Grand Rounds speakers.  We also have select recordings of grand rounds and other presentations. 

Members of the UI Healthcare community may join the sessions remotely with this link (If you attest to being present for the talk, you may contact the Neurology medical student coordinator regarding attendance codes for GME).  Guest users will not be admitted to the talk from the lobby (you must login with a valid healthcare credential).
