SHM’s annual meeting returns to Washington, D.C., next month. For the third time in six years, HM15 will take place at the Gaylord National Resort and Conference Center in National Harbor, Md., and that means thousands of hospitalists will converge on the nation’s capital to learn and lobby. Posters, plenaries, and presentations aplenty will fill the four-day convention, which runs March 29 through April 1.
And, naturally, SHM is planning hundreds of meetings with legislators and their staffers to spread the gospel of hospital medicine.
“I’ll be honest. I’m exhausted when I get back,” says course director Efren Manjarrez, MD, SFHM, but “it’s the most uplifting exhaustion you could ever have.”
