More About National Hospitalist Day

National Hospitalist Day recognizes the contributions of more than 60,000 hospitalists nationwide on the first Thursday in March annually. Hospital medicine is one of the fastest-growing specialties in modern medicine, and those who practice it are known as hospitalists.

Hospitalists manage patient care throughout their inpatient stay and have been proven to reduce readmissions while also serving as leaders in quality improvement and patient safety. Drs. Lee Goldman and Bob Wachter first coined the term “hospitalist” in a New England Journal of Medicine article in 1996.

Today, hospitalists include physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and practice administrators. They may be certified in a wide range of specialties, including internal medicine, family medicine and more. Hospitalists continue to drive improvement in care as they have for the last 20 years. Hospitalists’ careers can take many different paths, ranging from a member of a hospital executive team to an academic leader at a medical institution.

Notable names in the specialty include former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, CMS Chief Medical Officer Dr. Kate Goodrich and FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb.
