Scholarship

The Yale PHM faculty lead and participate in a spectrum of scholarly projects including quality improvement, medical education, medical ethics, clinical care, quantitative and qualitative research. Our hospitalists present their work annually at the national Pediatric Academic Societies meeting, Pediatric Hospital Medicine meeting, the Association of Pediatric Program Directors meeting, among others. Here are some peer-reviewed publications from the hospitalist faculty:
