2014 Grand Rounds

The UNC Department of Ophthalmology typically holds its Grand Rounds from 8:30am until 11:30am in the large auditorium in the main lobby of the Bioinformatics Building.

Typically, residents present unusual or interesting cases and a faculty member from the selected subspecialty moderates the event and leads discussion of the presented cases.

We also have a series of Visiting Professorships in which one of our faculty members from each subspecialty invites a nationally recognized physician to spend a Friday afternoon and evening with our residents.  On Saturday morning, we will have a Grand Rounds style event in which the Visiting Professor will lecture and present interesting cases for discussion.

We welcome all regional health care providers and scientists.  Attendees receive CME credit hours commensurate with the hours spent in the educational activity.  For information regarding times, dates, or subjects, please contact the CME Coordinator at (919) 843-0264.
