Heartland Hospital Medicine Conference

August 22-23, 2024 | Hyatt Regency Lexington, Lexington, KY

The University of Kentucky Division of Hospital Medicine will be hosting the annual Heartland Hospital Medicine Conference (HHMC) this fall. This is a regional conference of the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) and will feature presenters from around the region. Hospitalists are the largest subspecialty of Internal Medicine and are front-line providers for care delivery of hospitalized patients with a broad array of diagnoses. The vast majority of hospitals in the United States rely on hospitalists for clinical care delivery, and hospitalists are increasingly responsible for advancing evidence-based medicine for patients who may lack sufficient access to primary care physicians and subspecialists. Staying updated with current medical literature is a continual challenge for hospitalists. To meet this need, the HHMC will deliver pertinent updates in clinical evidence as well as innovative practice patterns to help participants deliver the best, most high-value, most efficient care possible.

This course will be an essential experience for all clinicians who are interested in obtaining skills in point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS); teaching POCUS principles, applications, and techniques. The course faculty have completed the national CHEST or SHM Certificate of Completion and many have taken and taught advanced ultrasound courses. The in-person course combines focused didactics and hands-on scanning sessions led by nationally recognized expert faculty from around the country. During the hands-on scanning sessions, course participants practice capturing specific ultrasound views of the heart, lungs, abdomen, and legs on live models. The course maximizes the hands-on practice scanning with a low course participant-to-faculty ratio and the curriculum is designed to teach the highest yield POCUS applications for clinicians. The hands-on sessions are complemented by lectures to improve the participant's knowledge of the indications, technical skills, and clinical integration of bedside ultrasound. The curriculum has been fine-tuned over years to maximize learning. This course counts toward the Certificate of Completion Program for SHM.
