Overview

Hospitalists are the fastest growing specialty in the history of American medicine with more than 55,000 in the U.S. The University of Kentucky (UK) is hosting the first annual Heartland Hospital Medicine Conference in Lexington, KY. The conference includes nationally recognized leaders in hospital medicine from the surrounding states (Ohio, Indiana, Missouri, Tennessee, West Virginia and Virginia) as well as Mark V. Williams, MD, MHM (Professor & Chief of the Division of Hospital Medicine). As past-President of the Society of Hospital Medicine and founding editor of the Journal of Hospital Medicine, Dr. Williams worked with his colleagues at UK HealthCare to put together a stellar group of presenters with vast experience in hospital medicine. This will be an evidence-based, continuing medical education (CME) opportunity. Come to Lexington to join more than a hundred of your colleagues and learn about the latest advances in hospital medicine.
