Post HM14 Web site updates:

Each year, the Journal of Hospital Medicine offers the Research, Innovations and Clinical Vignettes (RIV) Abstract Issue online, comprising all the submissions to the RIV poster competition during the Society of Hospital Medicine annual meeting.

This popular competition enables junior and experienced hospitalists from across the country to discuss emerging science and clinical cases, share feedback and make valuable professional connections in a fun, collegial environment.

The entire RIV database now offers you an archive of more than 1700 clinical vignettes and abstracts describing innovations and research. In 2014, more than 700 abstracts were added.

  • Use the meeting index to browse abstracts and vignettes by meeting year and author or title.
  • Use the searchable database to search by specific key word or author.
