Research

One prominent commitment of Hospital Medicine is to the development of evidence-based inpatient medicine practices. Through development of publications such as the Consult Manual, Hospital Medicine physicians have increased the exposure of internal medicine residents and medical students to principles of quality inpatient care. Their unique focus on inpatient care affords Hospital Medicine physicians a practical experience base on which to build sound and sensible guidelines for management.
