Mt Sinai J Med. 2008 Oct;75(5):430-5. doi: 10.1002/msj.20075.


Academic hospitalists have grown in number and influence over the past decade. This has fueled concerns about the effect of hospitalists on resident and student education. While the bulk of the literature favors the hospitalist teaching model to a more traditional model concerns remain that hospitalists may negatively impact housestaff autonomy and reduce exposure to subspeciality physicians. This paper will review the literature exploring the effect of the hospitalist teaching model on resident and student education.
