Comment: Hospital Medicine is the fastest growing subset of Internal Medicine and is in the process of growing into a new specialty complete with its own practitioners, body of literature, and core competencies. Presently, there are estimated to be more than 10,000 practitioners who identify themselves as hospitalists, and that number is expected to reach over 15,000 by 2010. This educational course will address many of the challenges faced by hospital-based healthcare professionals, and it will provide a forum for the exchange of clinical information and practice ideas to enhance delivery of healthcare in the in-patient setting. Topics that will be discussed include the use of corticosteroids in the hospital, updates in critical care and pulmonology, in-patient dermatology, pain management, evidence-based alternative medicine modalities in the hospital, glycemic control in the hospital, acupuncture, in-patient ethics, delirium management, and cardiovascular disease. The course format will feature clinical updates, case presentations, and panel discussions utilizing a multidisciplinary approach to caring for the whole patient and their family.
