"round", in this context, means to take all the antibiotics prescribed, as directed, for the duration prescribed. 

For example: A Z-Pak (Zithromax) is given in a 6-pill blister pack.  Double dose on the first day, then one pill per day on an empty stomach, without missing a dose, for 5 days.  That is a round.
