Welcome to the AAP Section on Hospital Medicine!  

As Chair of the Executive Committee, I am looking forward to listening with intention, thoughtfully moving forward initiatives important to many of us, working collaboratively with our sub-committees and taskforces, learning from all of you, and continuing to grow together as a diverse and welcoming community of pediatric hospitalists.
I hope to bring together members of AAP SOHM both through our already incredible national initiatives and with new local ways to connect with fellow pediatric hospitalists in our communities.  I will advocate for the critical roles of all pediatric hospitalists regardless of sub-board status who contribute greatly to our field and are valued.  The heart of AAP SOHM is in the work of our sub-committees and taskforces – advocacy, health equity, neonatal, community, LGBTQIA+, wellness, women in PHM, surgical care, APPs, global health, med-peds, and more.  You all are remarkable advocates and give meaning and purpose to so many.

To learn more about our tremendous sub-committees and task forces and get involved (truly a fantastic professional volunteer job and career sustaining work), please click here.
Thank you for everything you all do to care for hospitalized neonates and children!  

Your work and contributions to our field are a constant source of professional joy.
I cannot wait to work with you.

Rachel Marek, MD, FAAP
