Grand Rounds 4.22 is now up at Scienceroll!
For the general reader:
What are Grand Rounds?
…are a ritual of medical education, consisting of presenting the medical problems and treatment of a particular patient to an audience consisting of doctors, residents, and medical students. The patient is usually present for the presentation and may answer questions. Grand rounds have evolved considerably over the years, with most current sessions rarely having a patient present and being more akin to lectures.
In the medical blogosphere, the tradition of Grand Rounds continues. The virtual Grand Rounds were brilliantly founded by Nicholas Genes in 2004. This “weekly compilation of the best medical blogs” is “hosted by a different blogger each week.” The first Grand Rounds subsequently debuted at his medical blog, Blogborygmi.
The number of submissions, the learning value, and the diverse content are truly worth the while. It shows the many many interests and issues of medicine. Truly a ton of somethings for the curious or the voracious.
