Hospitalists’ Publications Burgeoning

The physicians in the GIM Hospitalist Program seem to have gone on a writing spree, the result of which is their publication of 15 articles in medical journalsand an AHRQ report since the beginning of the year. Altogether, 11 members of the program figure as authors of the published studies. Dr. Daniel Brotman, the Director of the Hospitalist Program appears as the senior author on five of the articles, as first-named author on a sixth, and as a co-author on two further studies.

Kudos to all the busy investigators in the Hospitalist Program on their recent publication blitz!

The citations and links to their 2013 articles are listed below in order of their date of publication. The Hospitalist authors’ names are in boldface type, and additional GIM authors’ names are underlined.
