What advice do you have for early-career hospitalists looking to advance their career in hospital medicine?
My advice to early-career hospitalists is to be open to opportunity. There is so much change and development in the field of hospital medicine. While the foundation of our job is in the patient care realm, many of us find a niche that interests us. My advice is pursue it and be open to what follows, without forgetting that we do this for our patients and community.
