General:

Feedback for Grand Rounds – The presenters from last week are asking for our feedback in order to improve the way they are giving lectures. Email Dr Perkins by Wednesday so he can pass it along. They are clearly quite invested in medical education so let’s try to help them out. A summary PPt is attached to this email for our use. 

TEE Call Schedule – is attached. The four TEE credentialled attendings want to be notified of any potential patients so please contact whoever is on call.
