Become an academy member.
Hopefully you’ve practiced in enough settings to understand how special the typical American hospital is. An often sprawling, multi-million dollar institution almost entirely dedicated to supporting you as you provide what is considered the pinnacle of modern medical care… the care of the acutely ill hospitalized patient.
To join The American Academy of Hospital Medicine is to declare that, in an environment of ever increasing pressures for efficiency, our goal is not to produce the least expensive care or the cheapest product but to produce excellence! Excellence to the point that our care and our service to the institution will be perceived as a bargain at almost any price.
Become an Academy member and signal to your prospective employers that you understand the myriad of pressures experienced by the typical hospital system and that you’re here to help. To help by providing not only safe and efficient care with an eye towards patient satisfaction but also to be an active partner in their efforts, offering effective leadership when called upon.
