The UK Hospital Medicine Track (HMT) is dedicated to providing targeted, specific content for 3rd year residents committed to the tenets of HM. Residents are selected via a competitive application process. Core faculty from the UK Division of Hospital Medicine, with support from the UK Internal Medicine Residency Program, provide intensive mentoring of participating residents and deliver a broad curriculum covering relevant HM topics.
Track highlights include:
- Structured teaching on pertinent HM topics including quality improvement, billing, resource stewardship, consultation, co-management, and working with advanced practice providers (APPs)
- Practicum elective focused on developing autonomy and efficiency while triaging and caring for complex medical patients
- Mentorship from assigned experienced hospitalists and core HMT faculty
- Intensive coaching and just-in-time learning as residents develop and manage their own group quality improvement project
