The Department of Surgery Grand Rounds features presentations relating to best practices in surgery, teamwork, and groundbreaking clinical research. Grand Rounds features a variety of surgical specialties, in order to best represent the population of clinicians and learners within the department and to broaden surgical knowledge outside of one’s direct specialty. We invite presenters from campus and across the world to provide meaningful learning experiences to members of our department.
This activity is designed for UW Department of Surgery faculty, residents and other healthcare providers as well as all surgeons and clinicians in Wisconsin and across the country interested in clinical effectiveness and efficacy as it relates to patient care and disease processes. As defined by the American College of Surgeons, surgeons are expected to study and evaluate new procedures and to become competent and proficient with advances that are appropriate. Technical skill alone is not sufficient to qualify a surgeon to perform new procedures. Procedural skills must be acquired within the context of in‐depth knowledge about the natural course of a disease.
