What our editors are saying
I am honored to be a part of the Daily Rounds editorial team. I am impressed by the high quality of Clinical Cases we have already received. These are valuable learning tools and should not go unpublished. Matthew Peterson MD, PhD
This is a great effort. A case based learning approach will help in creating better Doctors. So I feel what we attempt via Daily Rounds will have a lasting impact on not only how we learn things, but also on patient outcomes. Dr. Aarti Vazirani MD
