bedside_rounding  Peer-identified “respected bedside teachers” were interviewed and identified multiple barriers to bedside rounding, including systems issues (e.g. geography, small rooms and large teams), time pressures, and low learner comfort with bedside rounding.  What might be more interesting is to discover the barriers which stop attendings from becoming “respected bedside teachers”. -Laura Willett, MD
