Hospitalists interested in promoting their research still have time to submit applications for SHM’s Research, Innovation, and Clinical Vignettes (RIV) competition. RIV abstracts will be presented at HM12 in San Diego.
SHM also is accepting nominations for its annual awards program, which honors hospitalists who demonstrate excellence in clinical work, teaching, scholarly research, and service to the specialty.
Applications for both programs can be obtained at www.hospitalmedicine.org. The deadline for SHM’s annual award submissions is Nov. 1; applications for RIV abstracts will be accepted until Dec. 1.
Both sets of awards will be presented live on stage at HM12.
The annual awards often are a precursor to even more prestige within the specialty. In 2005, SHM’s immediate past president Jeff Wiese, MD, SFHM, FACP won the “Excellence in Teaching” award, SHM president Joseph Ming-Wah Li, MD, SFHM, won for “Outstanding Service in Hospital Medicine,” and SHM president-elect Shaun Frost, MD, won for “Clinical Excellence.”
