FAQs for UWCCC Grand Rounds
Note (added 3/12/2020): The FAQ below refers to a departmental online CME platform that is being replaced by a school-wide platform. Sessions in the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center (UWCCC) CME Application are from live lectures that occurred during the academic year. Lectures are available for online CME credit up to one year from the date of the original, live lecture presentation. Sessions from UWCCC 2019-2020 academic year and beyond are available for enduring (online) CME on the Interprofessional Continuing Education Partnership (ICEP) website. For technical help with the ICEP platform, contact email@example.com

Who can attend Grand Rounds?
Grand Rounds is a way for UW Carbone Cancer Center members, faculty, staff, and trainees to stay up to date on the latest developments in research. Regardless of cancer center affiliation, anyone may attend any Grand Rounds unless otherwise noted.
Additionally, our doctors, nurses, and pharmacists earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits by attending Grand Rounds.
What is this system for?
