My new post on Physician's Weekly is Who is my doctor? The advent of hospitalists and "teams" of physicians has negatively impacted patients' perceptions of who is taking care of them.

Hospitalists were to be the answer to the decline in funding for residency programs, essentially acting as a PGY3 but for higher pay. Their case loads are tremendous and many times without support from hospital interns and other resident physicians.

Hospitalists and have controlled hours, take a load off the residents, and give office-based primary care docs more time for office practice. The only losers are the patients.
