By developing and nurturing the UC Irvine hospitalist program, Dr. Amin has exhibited a deep commitment to the core missions of hospital medicine. “Our multidisciplinary program has nine different specialties managed under one program,” he notes. He has structured the program in such a way that members hold dual appointments in the HM program and their individual departments or divisions, thus creating a bridge between the HM program and other departments.
“We have an integrated group that is working together for the focus of advancement in the hospital setting, in terms of clinical care, teaching, team-building, quality and systems improvement. As a result, we’ve had great outcomes in terms of length of stay, quality, and core measures,” Dr. Amin says. “I’ve been fortunate to work with a team of hospitalist faculty who are spectacular and collectively deserve kudos for the success of our group.”
