Education PEM Grand Rounds / Research Seminars
This seminar-format six per year provides our faculty, fellows, and staff familiarity with recent advances in their subspecialty. These seminars discuss controversial issues in PEM, develop practice guidelines, and develop/enhance research skills. PEM Grand Rounds also serve as a forum to introduce new technology, e.g., new techniques and materials in casting, splinting, iontophoresis, and fiber optic assisted intubation. The research seminar focuses on teaching research skills in didactic sessions or in discussion of planned research projects by faculty or fellows. PEM Grand Rounds and the research seminars alternate on the second Wednesday, every other month, and are accredited by the ACCME for 1.5 Category I Continuing Medical Education Credits per session.
