PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Since 2014, the Hospital Medicine Summit (HMS), a multi-disciplinary educational event has been providing an exceptional educational experience that is inclusive of clinicians who manage patients in the acute setting and those who have transitioned to the chronic care setting. Serving hospitalists, internal medicine physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and nurses, HMS fulfills a critical need to address significant changes in the healthcare system and the increased demand on these clinicians so they can provide optimal care to patients both in the hospital or acute care setting and when they are discharged into the community healthcare system.

2021 HMS goes virtual…
This engaging, interactive broadcast will provide participants the ability to ask questions and participate in all polling exercises in real-time, thus simulating the experience of a live, in-person conference.
