A Master in Hospital Medicine designation is the apex of distinguished prestige in the hospital medicine community.
For mastership, SHM involvement is expected (with rare exceptions). While most Masters will be physicians and hospitalists, non-physicians and non-hospitalists of exceptional merit and contributions to SHM and hospital medicine including SHM employees and contractors may be nominated for mastership.
The Masters Selection Committee reviews nominees for mastership. The committee will make their recommendations for final approval to the SHM Board of Directors, which will also have access to the complete list of candidates.
