Hospital-Based Careers

The Hospital-Based Careers (HBC) Pathway was developed to help residents interested in primarily hospital-based careers (i.e. hospitalist, critical care, emergency medicine, neonatology, cardiology, hematology/oncology) tailor their educational experience during residency to their interests. The pathway's basic elements are:

  • Learning plan development guide
