An OB/GYN Hospitalist is a specialized subset of
Obstetrician/Gynecologists whose primary professional focus is the medical care
of hospitalized patients. Hospitalists play a critical role in the
management of obstetric emergencies and the standardization of medical care on
the Labor and Delivery unit, which improves outcomes.
Our hospitalist division members work predominantly in the
hospital on labor and delivery. At Jacobs Medical Center, working
alongside our Maternal Fetal Medicine, General OB/GYN and Certified Nurse
Midwife colleagues, we provide comprehensive Labor and delivery coverage.
At Hillcrest Medical Center, we serve as the primary attending physicians (at
all hours) for all OB/GYN services and work with our departmental colleagues
including our daytime Certified Nurse Midwives. In addition, on the
Hillcrest campus, we staff the Hillcrest OB Group clinic to provide
continuity in prenatal care and delivery. We also have expertise in
providing inpatient gynecologic consultations and treatment of emergent early
pregnancy and gynecologic conditions.
At UCSD, our hospitalists become a consistent presence for
patients, referring physicians, and resident and medical student learners. The
continuity plays an invaluable role in patient safety and the smooth running of
inpatient services. We hold a strong commitment to education and members
of this division currently hold many leadership positions in medical student
and resident education. In addition, we are actively involved in research,
quality improvement initiatives and we serve on departmental, UCSD Medical
Center, UCSD School of Medicine and UCSD campus
