Join us at Highland ICARE Rounds

Join us at Highland ICARE Rounds

As doctors we are asked on a daily basis to play a significant part in some of the most important events and decisions in people’s lives. Navigating with the sometimes difficult patients, families, or medical situations that arise, however, can take its toll upon us. In order to begin to process these issues, Highland’s ICARE Rounds offer a unique and confidential forum where physicians and interdisciplinary staff meet to discuss among ourselves these cases and the complex psycho-social, spiritual, and emotional issues that can so impact us, both personally and professionally.
