A hospitalist plays a key role in the care and recovery of hospitalized patients. As a general physician, hospitalists are responsible for patient care, team leadership, advanced research and other important hospital duties. On a day-to-day basis, the hospitalist will be required to diagnose, examine and treat hospitalized patients. They will also be asked to order tests and treatments, as well as consult with other hospital physicians to determine the best plan of care for each patient. When appropriate, the hospitalist will speak with specialty physicians to decide on a plan of action for patients with specialized needs. A professional hospitalist must know how to rely on their good judgment, critical thinking skills and fast decision-making abilities to successfully treat each patient and promote good health practices. Hospitalists will likely see patients inside and outside of the ER as well as in other hospital facilities.
