Hospitalist Jobs As A Growing Profession
The profession of hospitalist has been dubbed the fastest-growing physician specialty in history by the Society of Hospital Medicine, with Jeanette Kalupa of SHM stating that there are "seven hospitalist jobs for every hospitalist out there." The lion's share of hospitals and medical facilities today either have a working program in place, or are considering one for the near future.
As the need for physicians continues to skyrocket over the next decade, combined with the integration of hospitalist programs in more facilities, need is quickly going to increase by many times over.
The Role Of Locum Tenens Hospitalist Jobs
The shortage of hospitalists throughout the profession is further exacerbated by the way the existing professionals are distributed throughout the country. Many of the areas with the greatest employment opportunities simply have no candidates available.
Alternatively, a short-term vacancy may be caused as an employee takes leave for maternity, a professional sabbatical, or other reason. A hospital may also not be able to fill an anticipated vacancy in time, and a short-term physician becomes the best option.
When the need for a physician is urgent, hospitalists who make themselves available to accept locum tenens jobs are the clear choice. They can be where they're needed most -- keeping the facility operating to its potential.
Common Hospitalist Jobs Include:
- Primary Care Medical/Pediatric Hospitalits
- Surgical Hospitalists (Surgicalists)
- Obstetric Hospitalists (Laborists)
- Orthopedic Hospitalists
- Medical Procedural Hospitalists (Cardiology, GI)
- Intensivist Hospitalists
- Psychiatry Hospitalists
- Trauma Hospitalists
Why Facilities Hire Hospitalists
A proper hospitalist program adds value for any healthcare facility by creating an enhanced inpatient experience, by keeping staff organized and effective, and by streamlining patient flow. A good hospitalist will have strong leadership and organizational skills, and can address vital strategic and operational challenges without missing a beat.
By providing on-site coverage for inpatients, physicians working in hospital medicine can measurably reduce cost and length of stay for inpatients, while also minimizing readmission. Patients appreciate that they have a consistent contact -- one whom they can count on to advocate their best interests and be the "quarterback" for the rest of the staff.
