The Pediatric Hospital Medicine Core Competencies: 2020 Revision Dedication

We dedicate this publication of The Pediatric Hospital Medicine Core Competencies: 2020 Revision to our esteemed colleague, friend, and mentor, Dr. Michael Burke who died unexpectedly on July 10, 2019. Michael was the physician we all aspire to be: thoughtful, kind, gentle, intelligent, and dedicated to the science and the art of medicine. A number of those reading these pages will have known Michael’s warm smile and ability to make you feel as though you were the only one in the room, the only one who mattered just then. To those of you who did not have the luck to know him personally, you have not lost an opportunity to learn from him. His touch is on these pages, encouraging us to never stop learning, to always listen to patients and the family/caregivers, and to never fail to believe in yourself.

Thank you, Michael, for making us a stronger and more compassionate PHM Community.

The Editors and Associate Editors of The Pediatric Hospital Medicine Core Competencies: 2020 Revision:
