Hospital Medicine Education

In addition to their clinical duties, Hospital Medicine faculty members actively participate in the educational programs of UT Southwestern Medical Center and Children’s Health℠.

All hospitalists hold faculty appointments at the Medical School and are expected to create novel educational opportunities for students and residents. Faculty teaches:

  • UT Southwestern’s categorical residency students
  • Family practice interns from local programs (John Peter Smith, Methodist Charlton, and UT Southwestern)
  • Third-year Medical School students from UT Southwestern
  • Trainees doing elective rotations from outside programs
  • Nursing education students

About the Hospital Medicine Elective

A hospitalist elective recently sparked interest and is now offered to third-year pediatric residents.
