Hospital Medicine Clinical Scholars

The Weill Cornell Hospital Medicine Clinical Scholars Program is a one-year, intensive faculty development program that aims to foster academic success and personal growth for hospitalists. While geared towards the training of academic hospitalists, it is a program relevant for any new faculty who are committed to becoming leaders in academic medicine. Although there is a common curriculum, each participant also formulates a uniquely tailored curriculum that fits their personal academic interests.

The program focuses on developing skills in foundational areas of academic medicine: clinical teaching, clinical epidemiology and advanced evidence-based medicine, quality improvement and patient safety, and leadership. There is an emphasis on how best to teach physical diagnosis and clinical reasoning and how to properly evaluate and incorporate research evidence into clinical decision-making. The program also helps assure proficiency in bedside ultrasound, a diagnostic modality that most hospitalists are now expected to master. Additionally, there are introductory courses in research methods, data analysis, medical ethics, resiliency training, peer coaching, medical writing, and humanism in medicine.
