With over 60 chapters nationwide and 6 chapters internationally, SHM’s robust chapter program offers you many opportunities to connect with your hospital medicine community. All chapters located within the United States are grouped into 12 geographical districts and 4 regions (East, South, Midwest and West). Each district is represented by a District Chair who serves to report on local chapter businesses to the National Board of Directors.

Members are assigned to a chapter based on their geographical location. Join your local chapter to share knowledge, engage with colleagues and stay current on the latest clinical developments in hospital medicine. Don't miss your chance to connect with your local hospital medicine community. Visit our events calendar to find upcoming chapter meetings in your area
