OK, I said I was going to do it weeks ago, but I didn’t. Because I was procrastinating. But I just finished the SHM state of Hospital Medicine Survey, and it really wasn’t bad at all. It was even fun. I printed it out and sat with my practice manager and we filled out everything on paper first and then it took me ten minutes to type it into the electronic survey. We had a very enjoyable time working on it. YOU DO IT TOO!!!!
Think about how grateful your colleagues will be to get your information and how you can use it yourself!

Here are the instructions again –
Survey Instructions

This survey will be available for completion between January 16, 2012 and March 9, 2012.

To assist you in planning for and completing the survey, we have provided a survey FAQ document, a detailed Survey Guide, and a printable copy of this survey instrument. These documents can be downloaded or printed at

If you need to exit the survey before completion and return to it later, you may do so by clicking the “Exit this survey” link in the upper right-hand corner of any page – but you can only return to your survey from the same computer you used previously, from which the cookies have not been cleared.

If you have questions about the survey that are not answered in these documents, please contact us at [email protected] for further assistance.

If your practice is part of a large entity with multiple hospitalist practices in different locations (such as a management company or multi-hospital integrated delivery system), please contact us at [email protected] for an Excel-based survey instrument and additional instructions.

Non-Academic Hospital Medicine Practices: Please be sure to also submit your provider compensation and production data via MGMA’s 2012 Physician Compensation and Production Survey, available now at

I am angry. Perhaps, you are too. As a physician, it is heart-wrenching to watch people unnecessarily die from gun violence. As a mom, it strikes fear in my heart to know that our nation’s children are not safe in our schools. I vividly remember being a resident on call in the ICU when I […]

“We are playing the same sport, but a different game,” the wise, thoughtful emergency medicine attending physician once told me. “I am playing speed chess – I need to make a move quickly, or I lose – no matter what. My moves have to be right, but they don’t always necessarily need to be the […]

The sudden resignation of White House staff secretary Rob Porter got me to thinking. Let me say up front this post isn’t about politics. And by the time it gets uploaded, our national ten-minute news cycle will probably have moved on to some other world crisis or titillating disclosure and people will be saying, “Rob […]
