Association of hospitalist years of experience with mortality in the hospitalized Medicare population.

This analysis of Medicare data found that patients cared for by hospitalist physicians in their first year of practice have a slightly higher 30-day mortality risk than those treated by hospitalist physicians with more than one year of experience. The authors suggest that hospitalists in their first year in practice may require additional support in order to optimize patient outcomes.
