Society of Hospital Medicine to launch new medical journal

The Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) has announced plans to launch a new peer-reviewed medical journal, The Journal of Hospital Medicine, in 2006 to promote the science and practice of hospital medicine and the enhancement of inpatient care.

"The journal will also inform readers about non-clinical aspects of hospital medicine and public health, including the political, philosophic, ethical, legal, environmental, economic, historical, and cultural issues surrounding healthcare," said Dr. Wellikson.

"Hospitalists are rapidly changing the way physicians care for hospitalized patients by encouraging working together in teams within the hospital setting," Dr. Wellikson continued. "That makes it imperative for our Society to take a larger education and leadership role by publishing landmark hospitalist research and promoting industry education. Wiley will provide us invaluable expertise at this critical phase of the planning and launch of the
