Grand Rounds Vol 3 No 9
Doctor Anonymous is the host for this week's edition of Grand Rounds, the weekly carnival of "the best of the medical blogosphere." Until recently, the trend has been for Grand Rounds hosts to include all posts submitted in the carnival, which makes it not necessarily "the best", but simply a potluck of whatever any blogger wanted to submit. A grass-roots initiative, spearheaded by Kim over at Emergiblog, has called for improving the quality of Grand Rounds by reducing its size and including only the best posts.
This calls for some stringent decision-making on the host's part, and Dr. A has done an excellent job of it. The post summaries are clear and concise, the links are easy to find and follow, and the look is clean and professional. His solution to the inclusion vs. exclusion problem is to include a link dump at the end with those he did not include. Which is sort of like including them, but not calling them "the best." Seems like a manageable compromise.
Grab your coffee and enjoy some great reading!
