The principal goals of the Academy are to develop junior academic hospitalists as the premier teachers and educational leaders at their institutions, help academic hospitalists develop scholarly work and increase scholarly output, and enhance awareness of the value of quality improvement and patient safety work.

Each full day of learning is facilitated by leading clinician-educators, hospitalist-researchers, and clinical administrators in a 1:10 faculty-to-student ratio. Don’t miss out on this unique, hands-on experience. Visit to learn more.

Strengthen your skills with our Practice Administrator Mentor Program

New to practice administration? SHM invites you to join the Practice Administrators’ Committee Mentor/Mentee Program.

This structured program is geared toward hospitalist administrators seeking to strengthen their knowledge and skills. The program helps you develop relationships and serves as an outlet for you to pose questions to or share ideas with a seasoned administrator. There are two different ways you can participate. If you are a less experienced administrator looking for a mentor, or if you have more experience and are looking to be paired with a peer to learn from each other, you can choose the buddy system.
