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 our hospital staff and physicians.
Some rounds are Webcasted “live” and some may even be archived for future viewing. “Live” events can be accessed here or you can follow the Webcast link that will be available with each session.
Information on resolving technical issues can be found here.
Last year's archived events are available on the OTN network. These are for NYGH staff and physicians and require a password. Please contact conference services or the Centre for Education for the login information.
