Hospital Medicine Division Shines at SHM Converge

Wednesday, April 24, 2024

The Society of Hospital Medicine’s annual conference, SHM Converge, serves as a platform for hospitalists to share knowledge, research findings, and best practices. This year, the division of Hospital Medicine from URMC played an important role in leading impactful workshops and informative poster presentations. 

“In the ever-changing landscape of medicine,” said Wunnie Brima, MD, PhD, an attendee, “clinical update sessions at SHM Converge are valuable. Knowledge is power, and these updates are the fuel for progress.” 

Elizabeth Pope-Collins, MD, also attended. She said “SHM Converge yields so many fantastic opportunities to develop multi-center research and to forge deeper networking connections. It’s energizing to meet some of the most innovative minds in hospital medicine and to get to learn from them and even collaborate with them.”
