Committed to providing patients with comprehensive care during their stay at the hospital
Duke hospital medicine comprises a group of highly trained and certified doctors who specialize in providing treatment in a hospital setting, meaning exceptional care is never far from your hospital room.
When admitted to the hospital, you may be cared for by someone other than your primary care physician. This hospitalist physician will provide care during your stay while communicating with your primary care doctor to ensure that all of your treatment needs are met.
Duke hospitalists are all board certified and are prepared to answer questions and respond to treatment changes throughout your recovery. Most hospitalists have a background in internal medicine, pediatrics, or family practice, though some may have additional certifications in other areas as well.
Hospital medicine physicians care for inpatients with wide-ranging acute and chronic medical conditions, including infectious, respiratory, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, endocrine, malignant, and renal diseases.
