Society of Hospital Medicine Connects Physicians in Training with Specialty


 

SHM is introducing the Student Hospitalist Scholar Grant, an award of $500 a week for the summer to cover salary support for a student project related to patient safety/quality improvement or other areas relevant to the field of hospital medicine.

For medical students, residents, and physicians early in their careers, there has never been a better time to explore a career as a hospitalist. For details, check out SHM’s new website for physicians in training.

The demand for hospitalists continues to be high across the country, and job opportunities abound. SHM is helping to connect physicians in training with the fastest-growing medical specialty in healthcare. Here’s how:

  • Local events nationwide. Together with the leading medical schools in the country and its local chapters, SHM is organizing events to introduce hospital medicine to medical students and residents. Scheduled locations in 2015 include Philadelphia, Chicago, and Los Angeles, and the list will be updated throughout the year. Events in 2014 were made possible by TeamHealth, Sound Physicians, and Cogent Healthcare.
  • Special tracks at HM15. For the first time, SHM’s annual meeting includes an entire track dedicated to the topics that matter the most to young physicians and physicians-to-be, including working with mentors effectively, optimizing quality improvement, and making the most of your CV.
  • Student Hospitalist Scholar Grant. SHM is introducing the Student Hospitalist Scholar Grant, an award of $500 a week for the summer to cover salary support for a student project related to patient safety/quality improvement or other areas relevant to the field of hospital medicine. The project should be conducted during the summer between the first/second years (or second/third, if possible) of medical school. The deadline for applications is Feb. 15.
