Hospitalist faculty have the opportunity to work on direct care services as well as teaching services. Teaching services include both the Osler Wards Service as well as the Brancati Wards service.
Named for the legendary GIM clinician, researcher, and mentor Fred Brancati (1959 – 2013), the Brancati services provide hospitalist faculty with the opportunity to teach Osler medical residents on the wards. The Brancati A service comprises junior residents and interns, and the Brancati B service junior residents and sub-interns. This is the first opportunity for second-year internal medicine residents to take on leadership and teaching roles. Our hospitalist faculty guide them as they develop critical skills in education and supervision, along with continued honing of clinical acumen.
The Osler Services are named for four historic chiefs of medicine under Sir William Osler. Separated into firms, these serve as the primary training grounds for interns and senior residents in the Osler Medical Residency Training Program. Interns, medical students, and dedicated firm pharmacists join teaching rounds (either in person or via video chat) while another resident manages the service and minimizes distractions to create the optimal teaching environment every morning. As the attending on service, you will lead ACS rounds, provide bedside teaching, and mentor senior residents as they learn to manage a service that is typically high in complexity and acuity.
Sub-internship Elective Rotation
The rotation is an advanced medicine clerkship for medical students who have already completed their basic clinical rotation in medicine. The four-week rotation provides training in the care of hospitalized patients in a tertiary-care setting. We accept sub-interns year-round, and interested parties should contact the course director, Dr. Padmini Ranasinghe, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note: Johns Hopkins medical students who want to apply for a sub-internship spot on the Osler Firms or the Polk Unit should refer to the Advanced Clerkship website.
Resident Elective Rotation
Second and third year Internal Medicine residents training in an ACGME recognized program who wish to gain experience in Hospital Medicine may apply for the four-week visiting resident elective. The elective provides an excellent opportunity for residents who are considering a career as a hospitalist or a fellowship in hospital medicine to experience clinical work in an academic center. To apply, contact the director of education for the hospitalist service, Dr. Padmini Ranasinghe, at email@example.com. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.
The Johns Hopkins GIM Hospitalist Research Fellowship is one of two Hospitalist Fellowship programs available to recent Internal Medicine graduates with strong interest in careers in Hospital Medicine. To read a comparison of the two programs, click here.
