About Education from the Society of Hospital Medicine

The Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) is the leading medical community for hospitalists, clinicians whose primary focus is the general medical care of hospitalized patients. SHM is a member-based organization dedicated to promoting excellence in the practice of hospital medicine and professional growth through education, quality improvement, advocacy and research.

As the only professional society dedicated to hospital medicine, SHM aims to provide hospitalist-specific continuing medical education (CME) and Maintenance of Certification (MOC) opportunities. SHM is constantly working to help you stay current in the knowledge and skills you need as the scope of hospital medicine continues to grow.

SHM Consults: Perioperative And Consultative Medicine curriculum

Hospitalists are the fastest growing portion of the physician work force. Some estimate there will be 50,000 hospitalists needed in the next 10 years. As the number of hospitalists grows, so too will the clinical settings in which we practice. Consultative medicine is a service provided by many hospitalists, and a future in which almost all surgical patients are co-managed by hospitalists is already a reality for some. For many of us, our training in consultative medicine during residency was limited. We hope this curriculum will help you to feel more confident about your knowledge and skills and will lead to better patient outcomes. We welcome your comments and suggestions for future topics.
