I wrote about this trend I was seeing a few months ago.

My best wishes to Dr. Scott McGuiness in his bold pursuits within the field of Hospital Medicine at The St. Joseph Medical Center. The community knows a physician skilled in recognizing development disabilities can make a huge impact when positioned on the “front lines” of patient care. The Arc of Whatcom County really knows where to give credit where credit is due, thanks to them all.

So I don’t expect this trend to slow down. You can see on any number of hospitalist career websites (,, that more and more facilities are looking for physicians specialized in pediatrics and a big plus is given to those with autism decorating their CV.
