Abstract
A hospitalist system in Korea began in August 2016. Patient safety issues, resident law, and reduction of resident numbers in Korea are leading to an increase in the demand for hospitalist in Korea. The roles and responsibilities of GI hospitalists have not been established. Therefore, cooperation among the Korean society of gastroenterology, each hospital, and government is necessary. In particular, it is important to prepare an education program for gastroenterology hospitalists.
