Resident-invited Grand Round speakers

Every year, the residents will choose three speakers to give departmental Grand Rounds. The visitors' honorarium and associated travel costs are covered by the department.

For the 2021-2022, the residents have selected:

  • Josep Dalmau (Universitat de Barcelona)
  • Brian Appleby (Case Western Reserve University)
  • Patrick Lyden (University of Southern California)

Neurology Grand Rounds

Grand Rounds occur weekly in conjunction with Neurosurgery, Neuropathology, Neuro-Ophthalmology and Neuroradiology. The joint participation of these other services together with Neurology in this weekly clinical highlight conference is emblematic of the spirit of collaboration that pervades Washington University and permits the conference to seek definitive, interdisciplinary conclusions regarding the optimal management of specific patients or disease conditions. Visiting professors and other outside lecturers enrich this conference on a regular basis.
