Internal Medicine and Hospital Medicine

Hospital medicine is a type of practice within internal medicine in which the clinical focus is caring for hospitalized patients. Physicians whose primary professional focus is hospital medicine are called hospitalists.

 

The term hospitalist was first coined by Robert Wachter and Lee Goldman in a 1996.Physician who is engaged in clinical care, teaching, research, and/or leadership in the field of hospital medicine are called hospitalist.

In addition to their core expertise managing the clinical problems of acutely ill, hospitalized patients, hospital medicine practitioners work to enhance the performance of hospitals and healthcare systems.
