The smooth running of the team requires making rounds twice daily. Morning rounds should be completed before procedures or morning conferences begin. On these rounds patients are seen and examined, and decisions concerning patient care are made. The chief Pediatric Surgery resident assigns work that will be performed that day.
Pediatric Surgery Grand rounds take place on Wednesday mornings. The senior Pediatric Surgery resident is responsible for their content, but will be assisted by the faculty in scheduling speakers and helping to plan the curriculum. Attendance and records of the M&M portion will be kept by the senior Pediatric Surgery resident. In addition to the Pediatric Surgery divisional meetings, the Departments of Surgery at both OHSU and Emanuel Hospitals have Surgery Grand Rounds and M&M conferences.
