Sparrow Hospital is home to the only Level 1 Trauma Center in the area, making us the region’s top destination for critically ill and injured patients. As Michigan’s first certified Comprehensive Stroke Center – just one of 20 nationwide – we are the regional expert for neurological care. The Sparrow Hospital Mother Baby Center is one of the most trusted in Michigan, welcoming 4,000 babies a year. We invest in state-of-the-art facilities and pioneering tech, like next-generation radiation oncology and robotic surgery systems, and a new outpatient surgery center. Sparrow is also a major teaching hospital, helping educate the next generation of healthcare professionals and leaders.
The Vituity Hospital Medicine Fellowship at Sparrow provides both hands-on clinical and didactic training. The curriculum is built around the Society of Hospital Medicine’s (SHM) Core Curriculum.
The clinical training involves a series of rotations through the hospital medicine teams, as well as 2-4 weeks rotations through subspecialties including cardiology, neurology, emergency medicine, infectious disease, critical care, nephrology, hematology/oncology, endocrinology and palliative care. During the HM rotations, fellows will work closely alongside NCCPA-certified PAs, AANP/ANCC-certified NPs and board-certified or board-eligible physicians who foster a positive learning environment.
The didactic training includes 4 hours each week of clinical education and discussion. We encourage participation and feedback from all fellows. Curriculum is subject to change.
