Hospitalist Fellowship Program
Community Health Network offers a one-year fellowship for internal medicine and family medicine graduates interested in pursuing a career as a hospitalist. Graduates gain the experience needed to meet the credentialing and clinical qualifications that many hospitalist programs require.
Dedicated hospitalists, when compared with physicians who have combination inpatient and outpatient practices, have been shown to improve a number of hospitalization-related variables, including mortality, patient satisfaction, re-hospitalization rate, length of stay and overall cost effectiveness.
Many of these benefits may result from hospitalists spending more time becoming experts in the delivery of care in the hospital. We believe that hospital medicine is sufficiently distinct from general family medicine/internal medicine to justify special training in this field.
Our goal is to train physicians who will provide outstanding collaborative and comprehensive inpatient care, become superior medical educators and clinician researchers, and become the future leaders in hospital medicine.
The Hospitalist Fellowship at Community Hospital South provides graduates with the experience needed to meet the credentialing and clinical qualifications that many hospitalist programs require.
Fellows will have the opportunity to sharpen their skills with a variety of sub-specialty faculty preceptors for rotations that include cardiology, nephrology and critical care. By participating in hospital processes including quality improvement, utilization review and medical education, fellows will be guided by a team of highly qualified and engaged physicians who are passionate about numerous aspects of hospitalist care.
Community Health Network's Hospitalist Fellowship program offers a competitive salary and benefits to its fellows.
