Ron Greeno, MD, FCCP, MHM, Senior Advisor for Medical Affairs for TeamHealth recently presented at the 15th Annual Meeting of Japanese Society of Hospital General Medicine International Symposium in Tokyo on September 14, 2017.
He was invited to Japan to address the Japanese Society of Hospital General Medicine on The Evolution of the Hospitalist Model in the United States. The government of Japan is supporting the growth of the hospitalist model and has been accepted to become an International Chapter of the Society of Hospital Medicine to join other international chapters in the Middle East, Brazil and Canada.
Hospitalists from other Asian nations including Cambodia, Taiwan, Myanmar and other nations will be in attendance, and Dr. Geeno also critiqued their presentations regarding the growth of the hospitalist model in those nations.
