Schwartz Center Rounds® is a multidisciplinary forum where caregivers discuss social and emotional issues that arise in caring for patients. Open to the Upstate Medical University community: physicians, residents, faculty, nurses, social workers, spiritual care, environmental services and support staff.

The program is supported by the Dr. Daniel Burdick Compassionate Care Fund  #05700, established in 2013 at the Upstate Foundation by a generous founding gift from the children of Daniel and Billie Burdick.

The gift honors Dr. Burdick's compassion for both patients and caregivers throughout his medical career as a surgical oncologist and general surgeon, as well as his foresight in recognizing the emotional toll of serious illness on care providers.
