ABSTRACT:

Recent reports have warned of a crisis related to a shortage of primary care physicians.1 However, much of the current concern seems to have stemmed from articles in the medical literature specifically reporting that fewer internal medicine residents are choosing to pursue primary care and that fewer medical students are choosing family medicine residencies. Hauer et al2 found, among a national sample of fourth-year medical students, that only 22% planned careers in internal medicine and just 2% intended to practice general internal medicine. Ebell3...

ABSTRACT:

Objective
There has been a rapid increase in the number of pediatric hospitalist programs in the United States. As most pediatric hospitalist services are believed to be subsidized by hospitals, gaining a better understanding of the rationale for these subsidies is critical to the future success and existence of these programs. Our objective was to determine the rationale for pediatric hospitalist program subsidies from the perspective of hospital leaders.

Methods
A survey was mailed to hospital executives from a national sample of 112...

ABSTRACT:

Successful completion of the General Pediatrics (GP) certification examination is one of the requirements for initial certification in GP by the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP). In addition, the continued demonstration of a core set of knowledge, as demonstrated by successful completion of the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) examination, is one of the requirements needed to maintain certification. Test committees comprised of practicing general pediatricians, pediatric subspecialists, and pediatric educators routinely review the content specifications for these examinations.

Results
The response rate was 76% among the...

ABSTRACT:

Purpose
To explore the use and perceived impact of pediatric hospitalists as teaching attendings among pediatric residency and clerkship programs.

Method

The surveys focused on the responsibilities of pediatric hospitalists in...
