Hospitalists at UVA have broad exposure to learners across the spectrum of medical education, both in the clinical environment and in the classroom. Hospitalists serve as attendings on more than half of the inpatient teaching lanes. In this capacity, they lead clinical care teams composed of senior residents, interns, and fourth and third year medical students. Hospitalists also host learners on the orthopedic comanagement service, implementing a curriculum on perioperative medicine and inpatient consultation. Finally, hospitalists work one-on-one with outstanding fourth-year medical students on their Advanced Clinical Electives (ACE) in preparation for internship.
