Hospital Medicine Fellowship

Our Hospital Medicine Fellowship is a 1-year unaccredited program offering training in the field of hospital medicine for family medicine-trained physicians. Currently, 3% of hospitalists who comprise membership of the Society of Hospital Medicine have a background in family medicine.

Family medicine residency programs have decreased the amount of inpatient training when compared with internal medicine programs.  Since 2005 our Family Medicine Hospitalist division has been a national leader within the Society of Hospital Medicine in advancing the role of the family medicine hospitalist.

The goal of our fellowship is to expand and enhance inpatient and critical care skills of family medicine physicians who wish to pursue careers in the field of hospital medicine. Our curriculum integrates the core competencies in hospital medicine as established by the Society of Hospital Medicine.

Our fellows dedicate their time to teaching, research, and quality improvement projects within the field of hospital medicine. Our mission is to train family hospitalists who are excellent clinicians, but who also can become leaders in the field in academic or administrative positions.
