Advisory Councils

About Advisory Councils

Introducing a new volunteer opportunity for SHM members.

SHM’s mission is to serve as the professional home for hospitalists, offering members avenues to nurture their interests, share their expertise, and an engaged community to tackle challenges they face in their daily practice.  
To further this mission, SHM is introducing a new opportunity for members to increase their involvement with SHM leadership and fellow members. SHM Advisory Councils are volunteer groups assembled around key constituencies within our membership. These Advisory Councils will meet with SHM’s leaders to share their perspectives on key initiatives, critical topics, and issues affecting hospitalists and the delivery of care.

Advisory Councils will hold two virtual meetings annually where participants will contribute their insight and ideas on important topics facilitated by SHM’s leadership team. 

Who is Eligible?

Advisory Council positions are open to all active SHM members. Advisory Councils are designed to amplify member voices and offer new opportunities to engage with colleagues and the SHM team. 

Members are not eligible to participate in an Advisory Council if they are currently serving on a Committee or Special Interest Group Leadership.
