Abstract

Objectives.-To document the prevalence and practice patterns of pediatric hospitalists in academic centers in Canada and the United States to characterize academic pediatric department chairs' definition of the term hospitalist;, and to characterize pediatric department chairs' views of the training requirements for pediatric hospitalists. Methods.-A 14-item questionnairewas sent to all 145 pediatric department chairs from Canada and the UnitedStates during the fall of 1998. We defined hospitalists as physicians spending at least 25% of their time in inpatient care. Results.-Of the 145 eligible pediatric chairs, 128 (89%) responded (United States, 111/126: Canada.14/16: Puerto Rico, 3/3). Ninety-nine (77%) of 128 pediatric chairs eitherhave (64/128) or are planning to have (35/128) hospitalists in their institutions. Within academic programs with hospitalists, 82% of hospitalists currently work on general pediatric wards. Two thirds of hospitalists teach. 50% provide outpatient care, 50% have administrative duties. and 44% conduct research. One hundred eight (84%) of 128 believe that hospitalists shouldspend at least 50% of their time in inpatient care. Less than one third (30%) of pediatric chairs believe that hospitalists require training not currently provided in residency. Conclusions.-A large proportion of academic pediatric centers either employed or planned to employ hospitalists in 1998. Pediatric academic department chairs do not see a need for training beyond residency for hospitalists. Further studies should address how pediatric hospitalists affect quality of care, cost, and patient satisfaction.
