Allergy/Immunology Grand Rounds is designed so the expected result of our educational activities is that participating physicians enhance their knowledge and skills in the field of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, and apply the knowledge and skills to improve performance and patient outcomes in their Allergy/Asthma/Immunology practice settings.
Our educational activities include department-specific, interdepartmental and specialty-specific conferences of live presentations and live regularly scheduled series. Included among our educational offerings are updates in clinical medicine and basic science research, reviews of current or best practice recommendations for clinical care, learning modules in quality improvement, procedural and communication skills development exercises, as well as professional development in bioethics, leadership and patient safety.

Allergy/Immunology Learning Objectives:
Participants will develop strategies to implement updates on food allergy diagnosis and management and use of biologics for the treatment of asthma
Participants will implement new evidence-based data improving outcomes for Asthma and other Allergic and Immunologic diseases, which will improve patient care and patient safety (decrease in ER visits, hospitalizations, improving quality of life, decreased missed school/work dates, etc.)
Participants will incorporate different quality improvement skills into clinical practice
Participants will improve management of Primary Immune Diseases using QI strategies and new science
