About the Hospitalist Service

Primary care physicians in the Division of General Internal Medicine & Primary Care provide personalized outpatient services, from annual physical exams to the management of complex medical conditions. Our primary care physicians are board certified in internal medicine. Many physicians have additional training in specialty areas such as rheumatology, pulmonary medicine, infectious disease, geriatrics and women’s health.

Patients admitted to the hospital are often under the care of a hospitalist. At BWH, hospitalists are internal medicine physicians with additional subspecialty training. They care for inpatients at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Brigham and Women’s/Faulkner Hospital. They manage patient care and communicate with primary care physicians, specialists and families.


For over a century, a leader in patient care, medical education and research, with expertise in virtually every specialty of medicine and surgery.
