Forming a SOHM Subcommittee
Proposals for forming a subcommittee may be sent directly to Niccole Alexander at for review and discussion with the Section Chairperson. The proposal should:
  • demonstrate that the proposed group has a formal structure in place (a preliminary membership list would suffice) with an identified leader and
  • include a set of goals and objectives (long-term, short-term, preliminary, temporary) that would benefit the membership at large.
Subcommittees are required to periodically summarize the group's activities for inclusion in Hospital Pediatrics, as part of a poster presentation during the SOHM Program or the Pediatric Hospital Medicine conference and/or via the listserv®. And in return the Section provides:
  • a separate site within the SOHM web site for posting materials;
  • space in Hospital Pediatrics and/or the monthly enewsletter;
    a separate LISTSERV® dedicated to the Subcommittee;
  • conference call access;
  • ​technical and survey assistance;
  • webinar system;
  • budget to cover face-to-face meetings (pre-approval needed); and 
  • the list continues.
