Editorial Board

The Hospitalist‘s editorial advisory board is a volunteer group of physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and administrators working in hospitalist groups all across the United States. Now in its 11th year, the group meets monthly to discuss hot topics in hospital medicine, and meets annually at the SHM annual meeting.

Two-year terms are seated during the SHM annual meeting. If interested in joining the team, email to discuss opportunities.
