In Reply We appreciate the interest and thoughtful comments from both Dr Bergl and colleagues and Dr Walsh about our study. We share the concern of Bergl and colleagues regarding the limited role of bedside teaching on attending rounds in our and others’ investigations.13 It is unfortunate that in an era filled with increasing time constraints, increasing patient acuity, and increasing throughput demands that clinician educators are not taking advantage of the numerous potential benefits4,5 of being at the patient’s bedside with their learners. In fact, to address what we perceive to be this lost opportunity, we have described and implemented a model for bedside teaching and rounding in today’s hospitals.6
