The eighth annual Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM), Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM) and Association of Chiefs & Leaders of General Internal Medicine (ACLGIM) Academic Hospitalist Academy (AHA) provides academic hospitalists with the educational, scholarly and professional development skills they need to advance their careers and begin a pathway to success in academic hospital medicine. 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
  • Enhance awareness of the value of quality improvement and patient safety work
  • Support academic promotion of all attendees

AHA attendees experience an energizing, interactive learning environment featuring didactics, small-group exercises and skill-building breakout sessions. Each full day of learning is facilitated by leading clinician-educators, hospitalist-researchers and clinical administrators in a 1-to-10 faculty-to-student ratio.

AHA’s small size allows for close interaction with the faculty who help craft an unforgettable and valuable experience. Learn about this year’s course directors and faculty.

As a ‘recovering private-practice’ hospitalist, the conference helped me clarify how I can optimally fit within the academic triangle of clinical care, education, and research.
