Schwartz Rounds focus on human dimensions of caregiving.  In a typical rounds session, a multidisciplinary panel of clinicians presents a patient case that raises important social or emotional issues.  Following the brief panel presentations, audience members share from their own experiences, with thoughts and feelings related to the session’s topic.  In contrast to traditional medical rounds, these sessions are not about clinical problem-solving, but rather about exploring and processing the emotions that come up for hospital staff in their work with patients.

This forum is open to All UC Davis Medical Center Employees, trainees, and other authorized personnel.  Monthly meetings occur the fourth Tuesday of each month in the Cancer Center Auditorium – see future dates, times, and topics below.
