hospitalist means: N. One person who decided not to become a primary-care doctor, but discovered too late that they weren’t qualified to do so. They now complain to everyone who is naive enough about each patient’s admission as if the world has ended. 2 A person with an inferiority complex is one who feels the need to constantly prove his or her knowledge to medical students or residents by asking them arcane questions about UpToDate articles that were published the morning before the endless round.
