Hospital Medicine

The Tulane Internal Medicine Hospitalist Service provides patient care and resident education within our three affiliated hospitals, Tulane Medical Center, Medical Center of Louisiana-New Orleans, and the Southeast Louisiana Veterans Health Care System.  Thirteen faculty members are academic hospitalists and are dedicated to providing excellent evidence-based patient care and education of our medical students and residents.  With a focus on systems-based quality improvement, the Tulane hospitalists have hold several academic and administrative appointments throughout the hospital system.  Areas of interest for the hospitalist group include quality-improvement curriculum development, transitions of care, resident education, and strengthen of collaborative relationships with our community partners.
