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. The group meets monthly to discuss hot topics in hospital medicine and meets annually at the SHM annual conference.
