    Wow. Those things are part of our basic bread-and-butter training. I didn't realize that it was so frustratingly foreign to them.

    I think this is a case of finally calling a spade... a spade.

    There is nothing that IM covers that there is not a specialty for (Intensive Care, Pulmonology, Cardiology... etc etc etc) so how can you call them a specialty.

    Why? They can be hospitalists... it's not that bad... they knew what they were signing up for.
