Grand Rounds: Hello and Goodbye

A clever ad, and absolutely true if you are a physician or medical student. You really do “bet your youth” during the years and struggles of a medical education.

So, it’s not surprising that Dr. Edwin at edwinleap.com chose “Why Do We Do It?” as the theme for his first stint at hosting Grand Rounds.

Edwin struck a chord, as many responded to his question. He even found a way to include non-bloggers in the responses.

A great, inspirational edition! (PS – check out the entire site, the blog is just one section!)


Grand Rounds will be undergoing some changes after almost four years of providing a place for med bloggers to meet and exchange ideas. Oh, the ’rounds aren’t going anywhere, but they will be under new “management”.

Nick Genes, the Father of Grand Rounds and blogger at Blogborygmi will be stepping down as the organizer as of this edition. Many thanks to Nick for the hard work and dedication it took to establish (and keep) what has now become a blogosphere tradition for all (and Tuesday morning latte time for me!)


But have no fear! Grand Rounds will be in the capable hands of Colin at Medskool and Dr. Val at Revolution Health. The Grand Rounds schedule can be found here.

Good luck to our two new go-to bloggers.

Nick is leaving Grand Rounds in good hands!
