When it comes to patient care, be ready to give your best.
For many just out of medical school, and even for more senior residents, patient rounding can be the most intimidating aspect of their day. Juggling different patients with different conditions, answering questions in front of physicians and students, communicating with hospital staff and patients. Sure, rounds are challenging, but they’re also critical to providing effective patient care. That’s why you need to learn how to prepare before rounds even begin, so you can perform at a high level throughout the day. Explore books by residency specialty or resources devoted specifically to rounding preparation.
