What is National Hospitalist Day?
Occurring the first Thursday in March annually, National Hospitalist Day celebrates the fastest growing specialty in modern medicine and hospitalists’ enduring contributions to the evolving healthcare landscape. It was approved by the National Day Calendar in 2018 and was one of approximately 30 national days to be approved for the year out of an applicant pool of more than 18,000.
In addition to celebrating hospitalists’ contributions to patient care, SHM will also be highlighting their varied career paths and personal stories.
Show support for your community by celebrating hospitalists like you.

This year’s fifth annual National Hospitalist Day is focused on The Future of Hospital Medicine, including:
