How did you learn to perform hospital rounds?

Post by MediRounds »

I just wanted to see what medical students or residents in their clinical rotations think about rounds in the hospital. Has anyone received formal instruction on how to round? Has it been something that you've learned on the fly? I'm curious what the experience is, because my impression is that rounding is something that is learned by trial and error and not explained or taught in a formal fashion. I'm an attending physician and remember the days of trying to figure out roundings. I'm curious to see if the education process has improved!
