Our division is deeply committed to medical education. Hospitalists have served in key leadership roles within our internal medicine residency program.
Medical Student Education
Hospitalists participate in a variety of teaching activities, including instruction in physical diagnosis for second year medical students, attending on third and fourth year core clerkships in internal medicine, and facilitating medical student morning report and medical student grand rounds. Additionally, members of our group precept and instruct in multiple first year medical school courses such as Evidence Based Medicine, Physiology and the Patients, Population & Policy Course.
Internal Medicine Residency
As academic hospitalists, each member of our team is closely involved in the education of our medical residents. Every hospitalist spends at least three months a year serving as teaching attending on the inpatient internal medicine service. Our hospitalists also supervise residents on our academic general internal medicine inpatient consultation service. We attend morning report with the residents several days a week and present at Morbidity & Mortality Conference monthly. Hospitalists provide mentorship and guidance to our medical residents, and several of our faculty members are graduates of Georgetown’s Internal Medicine Residency Program. One of our hospitalists, Dr. Amarin Sangkharat, serves as Associate Program Director for the Georgetown Internal Medicine Residency Program. Dr. Adam Wolk serves as Assistant Program Director in charge of Quality and Patient Safety.
Further Educational Activities
We also have involvement in the Institute for Healthcare Improvement and the School of Nursing.
