Founded in 2001, The Hospital Medicine Program at Duke University Hospital has expanded significantly with outstanding primary teaching faculty for Duke Medicine residents and medical students, and currently consists of 60 providers. Full-time hospitalists within Duke Hospital Medicine Programs work on average 16 shifts per month. Duke University Hospital Medicine is typically staffed with 5 teaching teams and 14 daytime hospitalists on the general medicine service with all of our night shifts being covered by a team of 6 Nocturnists. In addition to our hospitalists we have integrated a team of 6 mid-level providers who assist with daytime admissions and support our sickle cell patient population. The Duke General Medicine service is one of the largest clinical and teaching services at Duke University Hospital, with an average daily census of over 170 patients in intermediate care beds, and over 9,230 discharges in FY 2019. We also have a procedurelist service which allows for our specially trained hospitalists to perform procedures such as lumbar punctures, abdominal paracentesis, and thoracentesis. In addition to having a daytime admitter (paired w/ APP) we also have an evening admitter from 12p-10p. The program’s primary source of admissions is the Duke Emergency Department, though it also directly admits patients from numerous Duke primary care and specialty clinics, and receives patient transfers from regional hospitals across the US. Hospital Medicine physicians serve as primary teaching faculty on the General Medicine teaching teams and lead the Consultation service for non-medicine specialties.
