Team ward rounding is a time-honored practice. Trainees learn clinical aspects and ethical values of patient care. Despite current emphases on the principles of professionalism and humanism in medicine, there remains little discussion about applying these principles to ward rounds. We believe that rounds can become classrooms for the intentional inculcation of professionalism and humanism as counterweights to unintentionally promulgated brusqueness, ambivalence, cynicism, and frustration. Kirkpatrick and colleagues describe examples of “humanistic rounding” gleaned from various institutions, which should stimulate discussion and illustrate that no specialized training is required to “humanize” rounds; rather, willingness and creativity are key ingredients.
