  • Co-chairs: Kathy Bradford (outgoing co-chair), Jennifer O'Toole, Lauren Solan, and Erin Shaughnessy (co-chair elect)

    SIG purpose/mission:
    The mission of the APA's Hospital Medicine SIG is to advance the field of Hospital Medicine within the APA and nationally by working closely with the two other societies that support Pediatric Hospital Medicine (American Academy of Pediatrics and the Society of Hospital Medicine). The co-chairs of the APA HM SIG are responsible for being active members of the planning committee of the annual Pediatric Hospital Medicine (PHM) meeting and the Consortium of Pediatric Hospital Medicine. Every three years the APA is the society responsible for hosting and executing the annual meeting with the SIG chairs serving as co-chairs of the meeting. The next meeting being hosted by the APA will be in July 2018.

    Current SIG goals:
    1. Lead the execution of the 2018 PHM annual meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, which is expected to attact over 1,200 attendees.
    2. Plan an innovative SIG session for the 2018 PAS meeting that will address the current needs of pediatric hospitalists within the APA, including topics such as the pending ABP PHM board certification process and ACGME certification of PHM fellowships.

    • The Consortium of Pediatric Hospital Medicine
      Given the rapid progression of the field of PHM over the past few years and the recent approval for PHM to become a board certified specialty through the ABP, the three sponsoring organizations of PHM (including the APA, the AAP and the Society of Hospital Medicine) have formed the Consortium of Pediatric Hospital Medicine (CPHM) to provide a unified home for PHM and its key stakeholders. The APA Hospital Medicine Co-Chairs are members of the CPHM and represent the interests of the APA Hospital Medicine SIG membership within the group.
