UHN/SHS Hospital Medicine Clinical Fellowship Program

Introduction

​​​The UHN/SHS Clinical Fellowship in Hospital Medicine is suitable for physicians who have completed training in Family Medicine or Internal Medicine, and who wish to acquire additional expertise and experience in managing complex medical inpatients. Fellows will gain competencies in areas such as management of common acute medical conditions, bedside procedural skills, health system navigation, quality improvement and patient safety, communication skills and teamwork. In addition to a focus on complex medical inpatients, our program offers the unique opportunity to work with specialized patient populations such as oncology, perioperative and psychiatry inpatients. This allows our graduates to meet the demands of the growing roles of Canadian hospitalists in co-managing hospitalized patients.

Our Program offers a 1 year fellowship, based at the Toronto General, Toronto Western and Mount Sinai Hospitals. At the discretion of the Fellowship Trainee Committee, there may be an option to extend the training to a 2nd year. There are 5–6 available positions per year. Fellowships commonly begin on July 1st, but starting dates may vary depending on the availability of vacant positions. This position is suitable for residents interested in doing full-time or part-time hospitalist work, rural and/or suburban locums managing acute medical inpatients and those who are looking for further enhanced skills in Hospital Medicine.

Clinical Fellows rotate through each of the Hospital Medicine Service sites, working closely with the interprofessional team and supervising faculty. As Clinical Fellows gain more knowledge and experience, they are also given increasing responsibility. In addition to working weekdays, Fellows will participate in weekend rounding call responsibilities. No overnight call responsibilities are required. Clinical training primarily is centered on daily patient care activities, including reviewing all new admission, daily discussions around the ongoing management of patients on the service, and comprehensive discharge planning involving all trainees, supervising faculty, and the allied healthcare professionals on the team.

Previous graduates have successfully joined busy community and academic hospitalist groups and/or enrolled in competitive post-graduate training programs. This program is ideal for physicians interested in a rewarding career in hospital medicine.
