SHM's State of Hospital Medicine Report

Now Available! Order the 2018 State of Hospital Medicine Report Today


About the Survey

The Report is derived from a survey that is dispensed out to hospital medicine groups every other year.

SHM’s Practice Analysis Committee discusses and reviews topics surveyed, fine tunes the questions and releases the survey to the hospital medicine community. Once the results are in, the committee and staff analyze the results and produce the report.

About the Report

The Report is an indispensable tool designed for hospital medicine program leaders (both physicians and non-physician practice administrators and executives) as well as frontline hospitalists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pediatricians, internal and family medicine physicians and hospitalist employers to understand the current state of hospital medicine.

According to the 2018 SoHM Report, there is an increase in the proportion of total hospital patients served by hospitalists. 75% in 2018 vs. 70% in 2016. 

The biennial SoHM Report provides extensive insight into hospital medicine group configuration and operation. It includes current data on hospitalist compensation and production, as well as cutting-edge knowledge covering practice demographics, staffing levels, turnover, staff growth, compensation models and financial support for solid, evidence-based management decisions.

It is available in various formats including print only, a bundle of print/digital or digital only.


SHM offers a variety of formats, so you can access the State of Hospital Medicine Report however you'd like.

The 2018 Report is available for purchase.

We participate every time the survey is available. We find it extremely helpful when we are looking at the recruiting and retention of hospitalists, looking at the compensation is and knowing what is happening out there in the industry.

Roberta P. Himebaugh, MBA, SFHM

The State of Hospital Medicine Report is the must have resource for any practice leader, scheduler, job seeker, or hospital executive. Our multi-site practice depends on the report’s rich data and broad scope to shed light on key decisions on a weekly basis.

Andrew White, MD, SFHM

As someone who helps direct at the division of hospital medicine, the Report is incredibly important to me and our group to reflect on things we are doing well and compare ourselves to other organizations nationally.
