Division of Hospital Medicine Faculty and Staff Development Update

bonsall-featured-image 
 The creation of our Faculty Development Program is officially underway!

As you have hopefully noticed, we launched the “mini Academic Hospitalist Academy” in October, with the Billing and Coding session given by Victoria Smith. Much like the “big” Academic Hospitalist Academy given by SHM/SGIM, our local version is designed to help our hospitalists build the skills and knowledge they need to create a happy and successful career as an academic hospitalist.


Subsequent sessions have focused on financial planning, writing a clinical vignette, getting involved in quality improvement, and understanding what it takes to get promoted at Emory. Remaining sessions in March sessions are:
  • EUHM: How to Get Involved in Quality Improvement with Hasan Shabbir – Noon, March 11
  • EUH: Getting Promoted for doing what you Love with Kathy Griendling – Noon, March 10
  • EJCH: How to Get Involved in Quality Improvement with Hasan Shabbir – Noon, March 10
  • ESJH: How to Get Involved in Quality Improvement with Hasan Shabbir – 4p, March 2
  • VA: Getting Promoted for doing what you Love with Kathy Griendling – 4p, March 10

We will also be launching a formal mentoring program in the late spring / early summer. Stay tuned for details.

Also, look soon for our “call for applications” for the Division Faculty Development Awards. This opportunity provides extra CME funding to go to a skill-building course. The email announcement will be sent out in March.

I would like to thank the Faculty Development Steering Committee members, who have contributed their time, energy and ideas to making all this happen:

Do you have other ideas or suggestions on what you would like to see as part of our Faculty Development Program? Please send me an email at jbonsal@emory.edu.

 Meanwhile, some food for thought for all the new hospitalists:
