REPORTING FROM HOSPITAL MEDICINE 2018

ORLANDO – In a video interview, Brian Kwan, MD, SFHM, of the University of California, San Diego, discusses the role of the SHM Physicians in Training Committee in “increasing the hospitalist pipeline.”

In discussing the work of the committee, Dr. Kwan describes how “a lot of our initiatives really focus on the training and development and basically nurturing them from becoming students to residents to early-career hospitalists.”

Two of the key programs he discusses are the Student Scholarship Program and the “new-this-year” Resident Travel Grant, among other initiatives that the committee is exploring.
