The 2019 Hospital and Internal Medicine Forum (HIMF) is an innovative, multi-supported, multifaceted educational initiative designed for hospital-based and internal medicine clinicians (physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and nurses). The program aims to provide important educational updates from leading experts on conditions that are commonly encountered by healthcare clinicians practicing in the hospital and various internal medicine settings.
HIMF is the premier regional meeting series for hospital- and internal medicine-based clinicians. It offers an exceptional educational experience delivered by nationally-renowned faculty. Participants will gain essential medical knowledge and be updated on recent advances in patient care, both within hospital medicine and across the broader discipline of internal medicine.
What’s new at HIMF in 2019?
The Hospital Medicine Summit has been rebranded to Hospital and Internal Medicine Forum such that it is more representative of clinicians in hospitals and large health systems and whose practice encompasses both hospital and clinic settings.
