Society of Hospital Medicine's HM15 Meeting Draws Thousands


NATIONAL HARBOR, Md.—Cherry trees weren’t the only things that blossomed around Washington last month. SHM’s annual meeting, with roughly 2,500 attendees, featured 100 educational sessions, a day of Congressional lobbying, and plenaries from the “Checklist Doctor” and the Dean of Hospital Medicine. Pre-courses, the popular poster competition, and updates on everything from anticoagulants to VTE helped round out HM15, the specialty’s biggest annual event.
