Hospitalist Training & Fellowship Pathways

Prepare for your hospital career

What is the Hospitalist Pathway?

The Mount Auburn Hospital Internal Medicine Residency program in association with Harvard Medical School is designed to prepare residents for any career in Internal Medicine or to pursue subspecialty training. The program offers a broad clinical experience, a supportive and highly trained teaching faculty, research opportunities, “matched advisorship” from day one of training, access to resources and mentorship from the Harvard Medical School and surrounding Harvard-affiliated hospitals and excellent fellowship and career placement programs. We are committed to strong clinical training for all graduates of the Mount Auburn Hospital Internal Medicine Residency program and provide an educational program to prepare each resident for the next step along their chosen career path.

Hospitalist Medicine has evolved tremendously over the last 10 years, with a variety of job roles and training options. Hospitalists are found at all of our local community and university hospitals, both at academic and non-academic facilities. Job types vary from the pure clinician (either entirely inpatient service, a combination of inpatient and outpatient, or inpatient plus sub-specialty work) to clinician-researchers, clinician-educators and clinician-administrators. The hospitalist programs are set up with shift work, Monday thru Friday daytime work, or other combinations. Programs are also funded by a variety of sources — hospital employees, private profit-driven hospitalist groups, or the employee of a primary care group. No matter which path suits you, the focus is on developing sustainable careers.

As Hospitalist Medicine grows as a field, the training options also expand. Many new hospitalists still come straight from Internal Medicine residency. Alternately, there are a growing number of hospitalist fellowships around the nation, which vary in emphasis from mostly clinical and quality improvement, to more research oriented with advanced degree requirements. They are one to two years in duration. Others may choose to pursue General Medicine fellowships, to gain research skills and an MPH, Masters in Education or other advanced degree. Most of these fellowships do not follow the Match process and have more flexible deadlines.

What is the Fellowship Pathway?

Get the experience and support you need to be a competitive candidate for subspecialty fellowship programs through our fellowship pathway. Spend your elective rotations working closely with attending physicians in your area of interest. Conduct meaningful, publishable research to strengthen your applications. And count on your mentors and advisors to provide guidance throughout the application process.
