We appreciate your interest in the Duke Hospital Medicine Programs. As we continue to have a vital partnership with the Duke General Medicine Service and be one of the largest clinical and teaching services within Duke University Hospital we continue to excel at managing patient throughput by reducing length of stay and readmissions. Our focus on these key metrics has transcended into increased patient satisfaction scores and the achievement of high CMS core measures within our program.
We are happy to announce the launch of our Hospitalist Procedure Service at Duke University Hospital. This service allows our specially trained hospitalists the opportunity to perform procedures such as lumbar punctures, abdominal paracentesis, and thoracentesis. These hospitalists are able to supervise the Internal Medicine residents and provide the residents an opportunity to receive hands-on training experience.
Our faculty has grown over the last several years. This year, we welcomed the arrival of thirteen new faculty hospitalists to our teams at Duke , Duke Regional, and Duke Raleigh Hospitals. Growth of the program has allowed our faculty to grow into roles outside of Hospital Medicine. We have several members of our faculty who are Physician Champions for Maestro Care (Our Electronic Health Record).
Our commitment to Quality Improvement also continues to grow as an increasing number of faculty hospitalists are actively participating in projects related to clinical quality, patient safety, improved patient outcomes, and medical education.
As always, we are interested in hearing from well-qualified individuals who are seeking hospitalist opportunities at Duke, Duke Regional, and Duke Raleigh Hospitals.
