For hospitalists planning on attending HM11, and those who can’t make it to Dallas in May, SHM’s blogs are a vital connection to the most up-to-date information about the biggest annual event in HM. And many of the specialty’s top bloggers will be speaking or presenting at HM11.
SHM bloggers will keep readers updated before the big event, highlighting can’t-miss issues, sessions, and experts who they’re anxious to see. Plus, they’ll apply the issues of the day to HM11 sessions and pre-courses.
One of HM’s most popular bloggers not only will be blogging about HM11, he’ll be a featured presenter. Robert Wachter, MD, MHM, professor and associate chairman of the Department of Medicine at the University of California at San Francisco, chief of the Division of Hospital Medicine UCSF Medical Center, and author of the blog Wachter’s World, will deliver the May 13 keynote presentation, “Hospital Medicine at 15: The Things I Never Would Have Guessed When the Fun Began.”
Danielle Scheurer, MD, MSc, SFHM, author of the SHM blog Hospital Medicine Quick Hits: Clinical Updates for the Busy Hospitalist and SHM physician advisor, will be teaching the “ABIM Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Learning Session” pre-course May 10. Dr. Scheurer will work with hospitalists to prepare for the ABIM modules and earn up to 20 points toward the Self-Evaluation of Medical Knowledge requirement of the MOC program.
In between teaching and learning, she also will be blogging about HM11. “I do it as a way to include those members that are not able attend,” Dr. Scheurer says, “or those who can’t stay for the whole meeting, as well as people who are at the meeting but who like guidance and synopses.”
With nine tracks and hundreds of educational and networking opportunities, odds are good that her online guidance will be in high demand.—BS
