The Society of Hospital Medicine and Society of Teachers of Family Medicine Joint Task Force for Hospital Medicine Training of Family Medicine Residents was established to create guidance for family medicine residency programs that wish to institute a dedicated track in hospital medicine for their residents. These curricular guidelines comprise several sections, some of which mirror the Society of Hospital Medicine’s Core Competencies in Hospital Medicine.The Program and Track Characteristics section advises how programs may structure a hospital medicine curriculum to ensure sufficient clinical experience to prepare graduates for careers in hospital medicine. The Clinical Conditions section lists some of the common diagnoses that hospitalists must be proficient in managing. The Procedural Training section describes the procedural skills that residents should learn as they prepare for hospital medicine careers. The Healthcare Systems section describes the additional knowledge, skills and attitudes specific to caring for hospitalized patients that may not be part of every family medicine residency’s core curriculum. Finally, the career planning and mentoring section provides guidance on how programs can support residents’ preparation to enter the hospitalist workforce.
