ABOUT JHCAPE.COM

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.
