The Hospice & Palliative Medicine Fellowship Program strives to provide exemplary multidisciplinary clinical care to seriously ill patients across the continuum of care, deliver effective educational programs and promote the well-being of providers, patients, families and communities.
We accept two fellows per year.
Goals and Objectives
The overall goals and objectives for hospice and palliative medicine fellows are to achieve significant experience in the diagnosis and ongoing management of adult and pediatric patients with serious, life limiting medical conditions across a variety of health care settings.
These goals and objectives are primarily accomplished through direct patient care as a member of multidisciplinary care teams assembled to meet the unique medical, spiritual, and emotional needs of the patient and family to improve quality of life.
Fellows will be a valuable member of the patient's diverse care team which also includes nurses, social workers, chaplains, family members, and specialists from a variety of medical specialties.
