Hospital "rounds" are an integral part of hospital life. They are regularly scheduled educational events in all departments with presentations and case discussion on various medical and health related topics. Rounds have become a multiprofessional forum for sharing and exchanging ideas, learning both on the "cutting edge" and updates on common topics. Rounds are open to all staff at North York General Hospital. Upcoming rounds
is a broad range of activities to renew or assist faculty, supervisors, preceptors, instructors, teachers and clinical educators. These activities are designed to improve an individual's knowledge and skills in areas considered essential to their performance as teachers, educators, administrators, leaders and researchers.
