Hospitalist Fellowship

The UT Hospitalist Fellowship in Jackson, TN is an outstanding opportunity for family physicians that desire further training in hospital and critical care medicine. Our fellowship program will focus on the Society of Hospital Medicine curriculum to improve skills in hospital medicine and allow the graduating fellow to become more marketable for job opportunities in hospital medicine. Our hospital has the busiest emergency department in the state of Tennessee with over 100,000 visits per year. Our hospital has 650 beds with 75 ICU beds and serves over 18 counties.

Our curriculum will be heavily geared for management of the hospital patient from admission through discharge and will include patients in our open-access ICU beds. Our fellows will participate in daily ICU rounds with our Critical Care specialists to gain more exposure and a much deeper understanding of critical care medicine. Each fellow will be supervised by experienced attending physicians and receive one on one teaching for our fellowship service. We have rotations in critical care, hospice and palliative care, administration and leadership development as well as elective time. You will receive training in transitions of care in both hospital follow up clinics and transitional care at our skilled nursing facility. We will have ultrasound guided central line and advanced airway training during orientation for the fellowship to also include hands on training in ventilator management.

We will offer 3 fellowship positions per year that will begin the 3rd Monday in September each year. The fellows will receive a competitive salary of $80,000 to include all University benefits such as malpractice, health insurance, disability insurance, CME, and 3 weeks annual leave.
