Abstract

Pediatric hospitalists are increasingly common in community hospitals and are playing increasingly important roles. Scope of practice and staffing models vary significantly by program. Unique aspects of small pediatric hospital medicine programs in hospitals with limited pediatric subspecialty and surgical support are discussed, including clinical and logistic considerations, training needs, and advocacy roles.
