Abstract

Neurohospitalists represent a new approach to inpatient neurologic care. In order to characterize this practice, we surveyed both a general neurology sample as well as a sample of pertinent American Academy of Neurology sections. Of the section sample, 42% defined themselves as neurohospitalists, compared to 16%of the general sample. The majority of neurohospitalists are in an academic setting and share call responsibilities with non-neurohospitalists. Many are concerned about the possibility of burnout in their current practice setting. This representative sample of neurohospitalists reveals a diverse group facing a number of unanswered questions and challenges, including concerns for burnout, ideal practice setting, and defining the core curriculum for a neurohospitalist.
