Hey, med-peds people.

Thought it would be interesting to have a med-peds thread about PHM hospitalist fellowship and how it affects med-peds. Well, maybe fun isn't the right word, particularly since I'm a huge opponent of the fellowship.

Granted, I'll only be doing adult hospitalist, but I think this fellowship erodes a lot of the greatness of med-peds - namely, the ability to do adult and pediatric hospitalist simultaneously in an academic center without additional training. As an added middle finger, there's no "discount" for the fellowship for med-peds despite an extra year of training.

Now that I've strayed away from peds, I don't have a dog in this fight, but I'm still pretty annoyed about it.

I have only ever wanted to do outpatient combined and I am annoyed about it. But I generally am annoyed by most things the ABP does.

4 yrs of residency plus 2 years of PHM to earn 200k? I hope no MP grad every says they are so passionate to suck academic balls. Every other 6 yr GME (adult cards, GI, crit, surgical specialities, radiology) speciality earns more than 400k. They will still hire NP/PA with 1/10th of that training and pay then 70% of your paltry salary. That's an insult. Every MP grad should show their middle finger to ABP.

Glad I'm not the only one irritated about all of this... The academic movement of peds in conjunction with the relaxation of practice rights of midlevels is mindboggling - pick a side, amiright?

I love taking care of kids and will be doing a combined fellowship, so clearly no med peds regrets, but the beaurocracy is mid boggling.

In view of "how can they hurt you more," I'll leave you with this: Academic General Pediatrics Fellowship | Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
