Academic Hospital Medicine Elective for Residents
Hospital Medicine is a rapidly growing medical field. At Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, more than 35 hospitalists are committed to delivering excellent inpatient care. In addition to clinical responsibilities, we conduct various quality improvement projects and clinical research, are heavily involved in students and residents education, and play major roles in various hospital committees.
We are offering two to four-week elective experience to residents who are interested in the field of academic hospital medicine focusing not only on clinical inpatient medicine, but also on the topics listed in "Health Care Systems" section of the Society of Hospital Medicine Core Competencies where residents typically receive little education during their training.
