Hospital Medicine Fellowship

Hospital Medicine Fellowship

The Sanford Health Hospital Medicine Fellowship in Bismarck is a year-long, comprehensive program for internal and family medicine specialists. Our program includes critical care, hospital administration, quality improvement education and teaching skills so our fellows are prepared to care for acutely ill adults and become future leaders in hospital medicine.

Fellowship subspecialty rotations and intensives include:

  • Cardiology
  • Critical care
  • Gastroenterology
  • Hematology/Oncology
  • Nephrology
  • Neurology
  • Pulmonology

In the critical care setting, fellows gain experience with codes and vent management, along with procedural experience. Fellows can also choose elective rotations within their unique areas of interest, including anesthesia and interventional radiology.

Guided by a Team of Hospitalists

As a fellow, you’ll have the opportunity to work alongside experienced physicians and leaders who have a shared passion for hospital medicine. Training is based on the core competencies of the Society of Hospital Medicine.

Training Experiences

The Hospital Medicine Fellowship is designed to train physicians in all aspects of inpatient adult care. You’ll learn how to manage patient admission through the Emergency Department and provide patient management consulting services to other physicians.
