Our group believes in the value of continual education; both being taught and teaching. To that end, we actively participate in the teaching and training of college students as job shadows, medical/NP/PA students on their clinical rotations, residents as they rotate through our hospital, and teaching our colleagues through lectures, grand rounds, and conferences. Hospitalist attendings make up the bulk of the teaching services here, supervising senior residents, interns, and medical students in their care of acutely ill patients. We also play an important role in teaching pre-clinical students at the medical school through small groups and preceptorships. Our physicians have also been involved in numerous hospital medicine conferences as organizers and speakers at the regional and national level.
Medicine is continually changing and adding to its body ofknowledge, and we strive to contribute to that knowledge and understanding of the science and art of medicine. Our physicians have protected research timeand are able to pursue diverse interests.
Current research projects cover areas such as:
Perceptions of palliative care
Safety and efficacy of consultative medicine
Eating disorder physiology
Short stay observation units
End stage liver disease and venous thromboembolic phenomenon
Acute encephalopathy in hospitalized patients
