Academic Hospitalist Academy

Academic Hospital Medicine 2020 is postponed.

After much discussion and consideration, SHM has concluded that it is impossible for us to move forward with holding AHA in 2020, due to the continued spread of COVID-19. AHA 2020 has been postponed to September 2021.

Academic Hospitalist Academy

Level One

Primarily designed for junior hospitalists pursuing academic careers, the Academy is an ideal learning resource for experienced hospitalists transitioning to academic medicine, or seeking to:

  • Develop junior academic hospitalists as the premier teachers and educational leaders at their institutions
  • Help academic hospitalists develop scholarly work and increase scholarly output
  • Enhance awareness of the value of quality improvement and patient safety intiatives
  • Support the academic promotion of all attendees

Level Two

A new advanced course will be held September 10-12, 2019. This program aims to meet the needs of academic hospitalists, addressing topics critical to all mid-career academics. The brand new Level 2 Academy was created for mid-career academic hospitalists. By the end of Level 2, attendees will be able to:

  • Acquire the skills necessary to advance their career in academic hospital medicine, regardless of specific areas of interest
  • Describe the business and cultural landscape of academic healthcare systems and how to leverage that knowledge to advance interests
  • Identify and pursue a scholarly niche by creating an individualized career development plan
Learn more.

Sponsored by the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM), Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM) and Association of Chiefs & Leaders of General Internal Medicine (ACLGIM).


The lessons I learnt at AHA 2016, really helped me in my interviews. I interviewed in about 10 universities for the position of an academic hospitalist, and I got offers from all of them!

During the talk at AHA about getting a mentor, I immediately emailed one of our senior faculty to ask him to be my mentor. That has been invaluable. So many doors have opened because of that email.

I have had many successes since attending AHA including, my cost awareness curriculum, I-CARE, has now spread across the US and into Canada with bi-annual multisite competitions among internal medicine residents at some premier institutions. I've had a trickle of publications that has been steady (now over 15 academic publications). Highlights are first author Journal of Hospital Medicine, middle author JAMA IM, and (fingers crossed) potential first author NEJM!
