Event description

Description


Schwartz Rounds are compassion rounds, not teaching rounds. They provide a multidisciplinary, mission-inspired forum where colleagues can reflect on the emotional, social, and spiritual issues they experience when caring for patients and their families. With a unique focus on the human side of healthcare, Schwartz Rounds offer a safe and sacred place in which caregivers:

  • Can give voice to the dilemmas, fears, and joys of their work;
  • Experience collegial support and solidarity with one another; and
  • Strengthen and grow in their noble call as agents of hope and healing.

A multidisciplinary team from Mercy Health Muskegon manages Schwartz Rounds. Each one hour session features a different topic that is brought to life through the lived stories of two or three colleagues. Participants are also encouraged to engage the topic by offering their own perspectives and experiences. Unlike teaching or grand rounds, the intent of Schwartz Rounds is not to solve clinical problems but, rather, to explore the human realities of healing and caring for others, with a dedicated focus on the dignity of the patient-caregiver relationship.

Schwartz Rounds are held the 3rd Thursday of every month (exceptions: April-NO ROUNDS and August - NO ROUNDS.

We are happy to provide lunch to the first 125 colleagues who register by the Monday of the week of each scheduled Schwartz Rounds. All colleagues are welcome to attend regardless of registration status, and we can only guarantee lunch to those who register. Thank you!
