Interrupted Training for Hospitalists

This program is designed for hospitalists interested in developing additional skill in managing complex elderly. Graduates will be uniquely equipped to become institutional leaders, able to help design and provide high-quality, geriatric-focused care for the older patients who already fill half of adult hospital beds.

Two fellows split the usual one-year training over a two-year period. This enables each to train for six months and serve as a hospitalist for six months at a time, allowing fellows to attend continuity clinics and their longitudinal nursing home site while cross-covering their patient panel with their training counterpart. Fellows also attend geriatric division conferences, core geriatric medicine lectures, and educational activities at the VA GRECC. During their six-month hospitalist blocks, they are paid as a hospitalist and maintain a hospitalist schedule, with flexibility during non-service weeks to focus on scholarship and professional development
