Continuing Medical Education in Urology

Educational conferences through the Division of Urology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine (UCSOM)  are accredited through the UCSOM Office of Continuing Medical Education.  The UCSOM is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.  The University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine designates Urology Conferences as certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM.  (Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.)

Urology Grand Rounds are held on Monday mornings.  Beginning at 7:00 we join the Department of Surgery for Grand Rounds in the AIP2 Conference Center Auditorium.  At 8:00 a.m. we break out into Urology Specific Grand Rounds.  The Urology Specific Grand Rounds will usually be held in Room A of the AIP2 Conference Center. Occasionally, however, the conference will be held in a different location. Please check the conference schedule below for specific information.   Click for a map of the campus and parking areas.
