Evil Grand Rounds: The Redux
Let's try a little humor here. In an attempt to get my mind off federal bureacracy, I present more Grand Rounds (and other activities) To Be Avoided:
All announcements are verbatim from my emails.
Department of Surgery sponsors
Surgery Grand Rounds
"Surgical Experience with 25 Conjoined Twins"
Chang and Eng, Orthopedists!
Department of Medicine
Division of Nephrology sponsors
RENAL GRAND ROUNDS
�The regulation of parathyroid growth in uremia�
A guaranteed cure for insomnia...
Cedars-Sinai Alumni Association sponsors
THE REVIVAL OF THE ANNUAL
Attending Staff Gomers
The Housestaff Blues
For those of you who don't know, "gomer" stands for "Get out of my Emergency Room" and is applied to elderly demented patients who turn up in the ER for no really good reason. I do not find it flattering to be referred to as a gomer.
Department of Psychiatry sponsors
PSYCHIATRY GRAND ROUNDS
"The New Role for Psychiatry In
An Age of Terrorism and Weapons of Mass Destruction"
New role? Try "tranquilizer dispenser"
�Lessons Learned from Litigation Against Oncologists�
Cancer is a very bad disease. Try not to get it.
