Neurology Grand Rounds

Neurology Grand Rounds provides free continuing medical education for the public. We strive to enable discussion that is both about and involves the patient so the physicians and providers can better understand complex neurologic conditions. In Grand Rounds, we explore the history of neurologic diseases and what can happen to improve care and treatment patients receive, and to better explain and expand on how treatments should be approached and practiced by the clinician.
