I have a friend who is a doctor, and when she adopted children and returned to work, she chose to be a hospitalist, because she is on for certain shifts and then off. She never has to be on call. It seems to be a good fit for her lifestyle. She says it's really nice to focus on the patients, although she misses seeing them follow-through their care after they are discharged.

When a NP or a PA does rounds on with a cardiologist, they are not called cardiologists.

When a NP or a PA does rounds on a patient as an internist I wouldn't call them a hospitalist.

Anymore than I would call a PA or NP that does rounds with a surgeon, a surgeon.

The term hospitalist should be reserved for physicians.

PAs and NPs are providers. Hospitalists are physicians.

Please. Doctor or nurse works just fine.

A doctor who works in a hospital. What a concept. What will they come up with next?
