Event Overview
Welcome message:

Hospital Medicine is a growing medical specialty that requires a diverse skill set. Hospital-based health care providers must be able to diagnose and manage a wide variety of clinical conditions, coordinate transitions of care, provide perioperative management to surgical patients and contribute to quality improvement and hospital administration.

This program has been specifically designed to ensure that participants augment their skill set to meet these many challenges in an effort to enhance the delivery of health care and provide better patient outcomes. Using an interactive, case-based format, key highlights from most major areas of hospital medicine will be presented.

This program is designed for inpatient care providers including physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Hospitalists are defined as those who spend most of their professional practice caring for hospitalized patients. Internal Medicine and Family Practice, among others, are specialties that have practitioners who care for hospitalized patients.
