    More Grand Rounds Fun

    Let me present some more actual titles of grand rounds or other presentations recently given at my hospital. Comments appended. Let the fun begin:

    1. The Center for Health Care Ethics

    A Bioethics Noon Lecture
    �Medical Futility: Where Do We Stand?�

    ... Foursquare behind it!

    2. "Irritable Bowel Syndrome: The Role of Bacterial Overgrowth"

    Breakfast provided by � [X] Pharmaceuticals

    Ah, a drug breakfast. Which will, no doubt, prevent that nasty bacterial overgrowth.

    3. The total grossout lecture...

    Medicine Grand Rounds

    Livers, Autopsies, and
    Professionalism in 2003

    Five Case Histories

    The five case histories were listed at the bottom of this announcement; let's just say that none of them had a happy ending.

    4. Pituitary Support Group

    �Take a moment for you��

    For all those heartsick pituitaries out there roaming around without a central nervous system to call home.

    5. * SOCIOLOGY 1, INTRODUCTION TO SOCIOLOGY: This course is an overview of what we know (and don't know) about human behavior.

    Well, that covers the waterfront, all right.

    6. It's All About Information

    Career & Education Expo 2003
    "Hot Careers in Healthcare"

    Find out about career growth and educational opportunities at [Hospital X]

    Visit with representatives of local colleges & universities; learn about the educational programs that help you train for Hot Careers in Healthcare

    Snacks, Raffle prizes, Souvenirs and Inspiration Brought to You By

    Organization Development Services &
    The Institute for Professional Nursing Development

    ::sob:: Can't I find out about a hot new career, or get some snacks? And God knows I could use the inspiration...

    7. Department of Pediatrics
    Pediatric Grand Rounds


    Good grief. This makes pediatricians sound like androids. ("What is this 'caring' that you speak of? I do not have an emotion chip.")
