“The breadth and depth of the content and conversation at the annual meetings amaze me every year. Hospitalists are setting the tone for national conversations on quality, safety, inpatient medical education and hospital medicine research. For inpatient healthcare providers, this is THE conference to attend.”
“The chance to compare rounds scope of practice, structure, and scheduling with hospitalist colleagues from around the country was invaluable.”
“I enjoyed the variety of both clinical and non-clinical subjects offered at HM14.  The presenters are the best in their fields, and having the opportunity to learn from them was amazing.”
“HM14 had a truly great offering of pre-courses ranging from ones focused on practice management to evidence-based management to advanced subspecialties such as cardiology and neurology. Many of the Pre-Courses were also hands-on including ultrasound and procedures training for hospitalists. Based on the high attendance at these courses, it was clear they were well-received by conference attendees. I am looking forward to seeing what exciting pre-courses HM15 will offer.”
“I was impressed about the diversity of hospitalists that came to HM14 and the culture of this large group was one of enthusiasm, energy and genuine interest in how hospital medicine is done across disciplines and in different geographic regions. There was a strong sentiment of respect and learning from each other. With this kind of mentality it is no wonder that hospital medicine has enjoyed such rapid growth and success.”
“I love being a part of the hospitalist movement”
“The Exhibit Hall was great for learning about new products”
“The educational sessions and networking opportunities were extremely valuable”
“I really enjoyed the Practice Administrator track – all administrators could benefit greatly from these sessions”
