SUNY Upstate Grand Rounds

SUNY Upstate offers "Grand Rounds" which provide our Advanced Practice Clinicians an excellent opportunity to learn complex medical information directly from Content Matter Experts. Participation in a Grand Round lecture provides 1.0 Continuing Education Credits. All Advanced Practice Clinicians are required to complete 25 CEU's annually to maintain Medical Staff credentialing. Please ensure, should you attend a Grand Round lecture that you sign in as well as keep a personal record of the event, so that necessary documentation can easily be provided to Medical Staff as necessary.
