This full-day pre-course is geared specifically for NPs or PAs new to hospital medicine. This course will focus on common problems new employees often face (and often are not taught in school), such as how to employ critical thinking and how to respond to acute situations in the hospital. Attendees will learn how to quickly collect data and narrow down a differential diagnosis based on clues from the patient's history and hospitalization, and how to develop a treatment plan.

*The titles and learning objectives for the Hospital Medicine 101 Pre-Course are adapted from the Hospital Medicine 101 Pre-Course developed by Jina A. Saltzman, PA-C and Jeanne M. Farnan, MD, MHPE.
