2012 Outstanding Hospitalist Award
Daniel J. Brotman, MD, FACP
Dr. Brotman completed his residency training at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in 2000. He spent the next five years at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation before returning to Johns Hopkins. He was promoted to Associate Professor at Hopkins in 2007, and deservedly so, as Dr. Brotman has published 37 peer-reviewed articles in the past seven years and been the recipient of numerous grants.
One may assume that a clinician scientist would therefore have little time to devote to teaching activities. On the contrary, Dr. Brotman has been tremendously active in medical student and resident teaching. For the past three years, he has attended on the Barker Firm of the Osler Residency Program. He has also been tremendously active presenting to his peers, including our very own ACP Maryland Chapter, of which he has been a member for ten years and a Fellow for the past six years. Dr. Brotman first presented his “Multiple small feedings of the mind” at the 2006 ACP Chapter Meeting and has presented the same twice more since. He has also presented at multiple Department of Medicine Grand Rounds throughout Baltimore, including those at Johns Hopkins, Mercy Medical Center, and Harbor Hospital.
Dr. Brotman has been a consummate hospitalist. He has been director of the prestigious Johns Hopkins Hospital Hospitalist Program for the last five years. In addition, he has been a pioneer of academic output in hospital medicine—a relatively new field with primarily clinical responsibilities. Dr. Brotman achieved all of this while maintaining an amazing clinical and teaching workload. Dr. Brotman is well-respected in the largest national hospitalist organization, the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM), of which he has been a member for ten years and a Fellow for two years. He has presented numerous times at SHM national meetings and has served on various task forces and committees therein.
His involvement in promoting the field of hospital medicine is impressive and his contributions to hospital medicine have been especially meaningful. We are pleased to honor Dr. Brotman with the Outstanding Hospitalist Award for 2012.
