I toggle between Vertex, Edge, and Face Select mode constantly. In a speed modeling session, this adds a lot of clicks.

I couldn't find any place to set a hotkey to change this setting. Is there one?

enter image description here

Try Ctrl+Tab .

When the menu appears choose the appropriate letter:

V Vertex select

E Edge select

F Face select

Alternatively you can use numbers: 1, 2, and 3

The tooltip shows the Python in case you decide to assign a single keystroke.
