This course, chaired by Dr. Robert Wachter, covers the clinical issues most relevant to hospitalists and other clinicians who care for inpatients. Taught by UCSF’s top teachers and selected guest faculty, the course – now in its 25th year – highlights recent advances and current controversies. To promote active learning, the course uses a mobile audience response system and features multiple workshops in a variety of disciplines to allow for small group discussions. The course will be offered both in-person and virtually.

The course includes broad content in critical care, perioperative care, patient safety, hospital neurology, cardiology, GI, hematology, oncology, nephrology, and infectious diseases (including Covid).

This course is presented by the UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine and is sponsored by the Office of Continuing Medical Education, University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine. It also serves as the West Coast regional meeting of the Society of Hospital Medicine.


At the end of the course, learners should have new or improved strategies to:

  • Improve diagnosis of common inpatient clinical presentations;
  • Perform and evidence-based work-up for common inpatient clinical presentations;
  • Apply modern therapeutic approaches to common inpatient disorders;
  • Appreciate the emerging scientific understanding of Covid-19 in hospitalized patients.
