In addition to their clinical duties, Hospitalist Medicine faculty members actively participate in the educational programs of UT Southwestern and Children’s.
All hospitalists hold faculty appointments at UT Southwestern Medical School and are expected to create novel educational opportunities for our students and residents. Faculty teach residents from UT Southwestern’s categorical residency program, family practice interns from local programs (John Peter Smith, Baylor Garland, Charlton Methodist, and UT Southwestern), and third-year medical students from UT Southwestern Medical School and trainees from outside programs doing elective rotations. Hospitalist faculty participate in nursing education as well.
A hospitalist elective for third-year pediatric residents, for which there has been good interest, was recently started.
