Hospitalists Win National Recognition
Six BIDMC hospitalists are among the first to earn the new Fellow in Hospital Medicine (FHM) designation from the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM).
Among those recognized during a recent convention are: Alex Carbo, MD; David Feinbloom, MD; Joseph Li, MD; Melissa Mattison, MD; Anjala Tess, MD; and Nancy Torres-Finnerty, MD.
The physicians are among a select group of 500 chosen by the Society from nearly 30,000 hospitalists in the country. The designation was created to recognize hospitalists which have achieved unique accomplishments in the field of hospital medicine.
To be designated as a fellow, an applicant must be a hospitalist for five years, a member of SHM for three years, demonstrate their dedication to quality and process improvement, commitment to organizational teamwork and leadership, as well as lifelong learning and education.
