Hospitalists now serve as attending physicians at many academic medical centers and teaching hospitals. The aim of this study designed by Hauer et al was to compare house staff and student teaching evaluations when their internal medicine ward rotations were supervised by hospitalists with traditional nonhospitalist attending physicians. The analysis demonstrated that hospitalists were rated more favorably for teaching effectiveness, inpatient knowledge, teaching of pathophysiology, emphasis on cost-effectiveness, and provision of feedback. When supervised by hospitalists, trainees rated the overall educational value of the rotation and the feedback higher than when supervised by traditional attending physicians. These findings suggest that hospitalists either have or develop a specific skill set that leads to an improved educational experience for trainees.
