The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences hosts weekly Grand Rounds for Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Continuing Education (CE). Grand Rounds are held on the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Thursdays from September to June at noon at Duke North Hospital in room 2002. The Grand Rounds lectures strive to attain a balance between basic science, translational science, clinical practice, and implementation of health services.
In creating the Grand Rounds schedule, a committee of physicians and psychologists meet quarterly to review evaluations and complete ongoing needs assessments. The committee strives to attain a balance between basic science, translational science, clinical practice, and implementation or health services in the annual Grand Rounds lecture series. We recognize esteemed and former department leaders through named lectures honoring the contributions of Ewald W. Busse, Albert R. Alden, Hans Lowenbach and James H. Carter, Sr.

Senior Scholarly Presentations
Each year trainees in their final year in the Duke Psychiatry Residency Training Program are required to engage in and present scholarly work. Topics are diverse, and projects range from comprehensive topic reviews to qualitative research to educational outcomes to randomized trials. During the spring of each academic year senior residents present their work at Grand Rounds conferences for which continuing medical education (CME) credits are available.
