Benefits of Membership in Society of Hospital Medicine Plentiful


Hospital medicine has always been more than a medical specialty; it is a movement to improve healthcare delivered in the hospital and to make the hospital a vital part of the healthcare system in every community served.

SHM’s members have always been at the forefront of that movement. The benefits of SHM membership now keep more than 12,000 SHM members ahead of the curve in a rapidly growing and evolving medical specialty. Although SHM membership offers numerous benefits, many SHM members tell others that simply being part of the movement to transform healthcare and revolutionize patient care is the main reason they joined SHM and renew every year.

  • Access to the Hospital Medicine Exchange, an exclusive online member community for networking and collaboration;
  • Opportunities to make your voice heard on important policy and regulatory issues affecting hospitalists and their patients;
  • Enhanced professional satisfaction gained through networking with hospitalists on a local and national level;
