Hospitalist Fellowship Opportunities

In 2012, CHI St. Alexius Health, recognized the national trend toward Hospital based medicine. Our Hospital Medicine Department, in collaboration with the University of North Dakota School of Medicine & Health Sciences, began offering a one-year fellowship program to provide additional training for family medicine and internal medicine graduates interested in pursuing careers as hospitalists.

Our goal is to develop the next generation of hospital medicine leaders by providing additional training opportunities focusing on the care of the hospitalized patient as well as teaching residents and medical students. Our facility currently has 309 beds and is a Level II Trauma Center.

Hospital Medicine Fellow


The field of hospital medicine is now well-established and continues to grow, with demand for hospitalists far out-weighing supply. With the concentrated inpatient training our fellowship provides, our graduates will be well-prepared to effectively practice hospital medicine in a variety of hospital settings. Enhanced skills and experience will allow the fellow to command more interest from hospital programs unaware of the potential for excellent hospital care by hospitalists trained in family or internal medicine.
