Description

The foundation of the Temple Hospitalist track is grounded on preparing residents to become outstanding clinicians and leaders in hospital medicine. This track aims to expose residents to additional aspects of hospital medicine not otherwise possible within the context of the general floor rotations that will help them generate a focus of interest (QI, Hospital Administration, etc.), as well as skills in the field.  

Residents will gain additional experiences in palliative care, consultative medicine and direct care medical services, frequently with one-on-one guidance. The track directors will also arrange didactic sessions on a diverse group of topics such as medical safety, hospital finance, diagnostic error, billing and coding, nutrition, and transitions of care. Additionally, residents are expected to participate in a hospital-based committee of their choice and develop a QI project. 

The above experiences, in its entirety, along with career mentorship and guiding residents in a multidisciplinary approach to inpatient medical care, is aimed at positioning residents for successful careers in academic hospital medicine.

How and When to Apply
