Duke Neurology Grand Rounds

The Duke Department of Neurology holds its weekly Grand Rounds lecture on Wednesday mornings from 8 to 9 a.m. Our lectures feature national experts from our Department, across Duke, and around the world to discuss treatment, management, diagnosis, and the latest research on all areas of clinical neurology. Our lectures are preceded by short presentations sharing interesting clinical cases or summaries of ongoing research. View our schedule for coming lectures below or browse our video archive of previous lectures.

Our Grand Rounds lectures are delivered in a hybrid format with a live speaker and masked, in-person audience in Duke North 2003 and also shared live via Zoom. We welcome all members of the neuro- and neuro-adjacent communities to these lectures. If you would like to attend, please email William.Alexander@duke.edu for more information.
