Every year, hospitalists from across the country come together at SHM’s annual meeting. With this year’s convention located just a few miles south of Washington, D.C., HM13 will be the most convenient meeting for thousands of hospitalists who live and work on or near the East Coast.
In fact, many won’t even need to board a plane to meet up with thousands of fellow hospitalists. For those in Boston, Baltimore, New York, Philadelphia, and other cities in the northeast corridor, the only meeting designed specifically for hospitalists is just a short drive or train ride away.
And when they arrive at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Md., hospitalists will find a truly expansive experience dedicated to the specialty. In addition to featuring four days of educational content, the meeting gives hospitalists the chance to catch up with old friends and network with new colleagues. Plus, with an exhibit floor filled with the nation’s top recruiters, service providers, and pharmaceutical innovators, hospitalists can get up to speed on the best offerings in the industry in a matter of hours.
With so many offerings and opportunities in one place, the challenge for most hospitalists isn’t finding something to do—it’s planning their meeting schedule to achieve all of their career and educational goals.
This year, hospitalists can plan their meeting experience with HM13 at Hand, SHM’s mobile application. Now, any hospitalist with a tablet or smartphone and an Internet connection can add educational sessions to their HM13 plan, view paperless abstracts, and connect with other HM13 attendees in advance of the meeting.
