WHY ONE SHOULD ATTEND:

Reflection Rounds is a program created at GW that has been piloted in 8 medical schools and is about to be piloted in 10 more. It was designed for clerkship medical students but is beginning to be used for residents, faculty, and students in other health care professions.  It presents participants with a space to reflect on and grow from their patient interactions and is guided by expert mentors.  It is incorporated into the mainstream rounding schedules. The purpose of Reflection Rounds is to foster caregivers' inner life development so they are prepared to address the emotional and spiritual as well as biological suffering of their patients. (Spiritual is defined in a broad sense as what gives peoples’ lives meaning, purpose and connection).  The overall goal is to prepare excellent humanistic and compassionate caregivers as well as excellent scientists.
