Division Highlights - Hospitalists

The Division of Pediatric Hospital Medicine provides outstanding family-centered, culturally competent, and coordinated inpatient pediatric care.

Our scholarly work focuses on system improvements, safety and quality of inpatient care, education in inpatient pediatric medicine, family centered rounds, and global health.

2011 Highlights

  • The Pediatrics Hospitalist Team received the UW Department of Family Medicine's (DFM) 2010-2011 Clinical Teacher Award—notable in that the entire team was recognized and that the award was given to faculty outside the DFM.
  • At American Family Children's Hospital and at St Mary's Hospital, division faculty are extensively involved in efforts to improve inpatient quality of care, with projects related to the management of asthma, bronchiolitis, diabetes, pain, seizures, nursing-physician communication, and discharges.
  • Division members are actively involved in numerous educational activities beyond daily rounds and teaching, including presenting national educational workshops, global health conferences, pediatric resident PEARL conferences, UW DFM conferences, PALS teaching, and medical student PDS sessions.
  • Several division members have been selected for various "Best Doctor" lists.
