We have folks do inpt peds and outpt medicine!
Mike Contarino PD UNC
42:20
that's not common....
Mike Contarino PD UNC
42:53
Community hospitalist is quite different from academic hospitalist as well.
Mike Contarino PD UNC
43:01
Both are really fun!
Katie Diamond-Falk
43:42
I mentioned it but we have 8 MP hospitalist practicing on the adult side and those that don’t do PHM at our hospital do other things - MP primary care, peds outpatient clinic
Allison Ashford PD Nebraska
44:30
I always think that if it’s available to an internist and available to a pediatrician, it can be available to a med peds grad! Same came be said for hospital medicine.
Mike Contarino PD UNC
45:19
Community hospitalists often see everything in the hospital so the general med and gen peds care is varied and interesting.
Mike Contarino PD UNC
45:43
Academic hospitalists often also have another niche- QI, POCUS, etc.
Nathan Stehouwer - PD Case/UH/Rainbow
49:02
perhaps THE key diplomatic skill of Med-Peds
Allison Ashford PD Nebraska
49:08
Nothing feels “unusual” to me as a MP hospitalist since I see both adults and kids! I don’t shy away from a troponin on peds— and I don’t shy away from congenital heart disease in adults!
Mike Contarino PD UNC
50:20
I love carefully getting Medicine to learn from Peds and Peds to learn from IM.... as Nate said above!
Blake Lowe - Geisinger
50:39
agreed^^. Currently working as a med peds hospitalist (50%) and med peds outpatient (50%). Really love the ability to see patients on both sides AND in and out of the hospital.
Mike Contarino PD UNC
53:54
Generally we are talking about the Peds Fellowship.
Mike Contarino PD UNC
56:03
Not required for us yet.
Nathan Stehouwer - PD Case/UH/Rainbow
56:43
survey of MP program directors last year showed <20% of institutions currently requiring PHM fellowship/boards
Mike Contarino PD UNC
58:04
But, it will become harder and harder to do both at an academic center without it over the next 10-15 years. SO one solution is many programs are setting up fellowship programs where you can spend up to 20% of your fellowship time on IM, get a real salary for that time, and get time to really learn those special things we do as hospitalists.
Allison Ashford PD Nebraska
58:06
The question I ask my residents when they ask me about peds hospital medicine fellowship is: 1) where do you want to work (what city/area of the country) and 2) what are your career goals (clinical work +/-research/qi/scholarly activities? )
Mike Contarino PD UNC
58:34
Won't be needed to practice in a community hospital setting for a really long time.
Allison Ashford PD Nebraska
59:08
Don’t shy away from peds hospital medicine because of this fellowship!
Mike Contarino PD UNC
59:32
We are setting up our fellowship as well. Totally agree with Allison!
Jennifer O'Toole - PD Cincinnati
01:00:24
Awesome!!
Allison Ashford PD Nebraska
01:01:16
I feel very well prepared to be a med peds hospitalist from my med peds residency!
Mike Contarino PD UNC
01:03:34
You will be well prepared to be an IM and Peds hospitalist after residency. Agree with the mentorship piece.
Heather Toth Medical College of WI
01:03:52
teamwork!
Heather Toth Medical College of WI
01:04:20
lots of teamwork with the wards teams, ICU, consult services
Nathan Stehouwer - PD Case/UH/Rainbow
01:07:22
agree I recommend the community rotation for all of our residents planning on hospital medicine
Mike Contarino PD UNC
01:07:49
OK let us have it with questions!
Karim Abdel Jalil OMS-IV UNE
01:08:14
Can you speak to how hospitalist work allowed you to pursue other career or personal interests?
Mike Contarino PD UNC
01:09:26
Ethics committee, Communication committee, guitar lessons on a random tues....
Mike Contarino PD UNC
01:09:47
Time with my family.
Mike Contarino PD UNC
01:10:06
It's such a rewarding and flexible career.
Allison Ashford PD Nebraska
01:10:07
Travel, having a family—> two things that I did after residency bc I had more time/more predictable schedule
Nathan Stehouwer - PD Case/UH/Rainbow
01:10:18
the schedule flexibility even WITHIN days is really helpful. And to Mike’s point, it’s been great for spending time with my kids.
Mike Contarino PD UNC
01:11:53
