To augment established but imperfect estimates of the current number and demographics of hospitalists, we used a new data source in this Analysis in Brief to provide a different approach: the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) 2009 Survey of Primary Care Physicians. We then discuss the possible workforce implications of hospitalists, especially as they relate to primary care. This new, evolving specialty warrants attention and understanding as it emerges as a prominent part of medicine.
