The Duke Neurology Department recognizes the importance of incorporating training in diversity, inclusion, and equity into its education, not just during onboarding, but in a sustained manner, for newer and established members of our Department.
To that end, Clinical Neuroscience Grand Rounds, our main continuing education activity for faculty, trainees, and staff, includes lectures to help members of our Department learn more about their own biases, health disparities in neurology, systemic racism and its detrimental effects on health, and other related topics. Speakers include members of our Department as well as national leaders in their fields.
