Facilitation Workshops are designed to help healthcare members refine key facilitation skills through observation and participation. The program includes an observation and debriefing of a demonstration Schwartz Rounds™ session led by one of our expert facilitators. Members work in small groups to role play scenarios and learn methods of handling complex or delicate situations. The day includes an opportunity for sharing successes and challenges of conducting the Schwartz Rounds program and learning from peers in the Schwartz Center healthcare member community.

Facilitation Workshops are open exclusively to Schwartz Rounds leaders (clinician leader, facilitator, site coordinator) and planning committee members from new and experienced member organizations.

  • Workshops typically run from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. local time. Please check details of each workshop for specific times
  • Breakfast, lunch and networking time included
  • Schwartz Center membership includes two free seats, $295/additional person
  • Continuing Medical Education and Continuing Education Unit (CME & CEU) credits available
