This year marks an exciting milestone for pediatric hospitalists: the 10th anniversary of the only national conference dedicated to pediatric hospital medicine (PHM). Although the first meeting might have been just a handful of pediatric hospitalists gathering to better understand an emerging specialty, Pediatric Hospital Medicine 2013 will be a bustling gathering of leaders in the now-established field.
New this year are three conundrum sessions and a Sunday plenary session focusing on pediatric overuse in the hospital setting. And in response to participant demand, the concurrent workshop sessions have been expanded to include nine educational tracks, including the debut of the early-career and community hospitalist tracks.
PHM 2013 is sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the AAP Section on Hospital Medicine (SOHM), the Academic Pediatric Association, and SHM.
