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.
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 multiple medical conditions across a variety of health care settings. These goals and objectives are primarily aimed at gaining experience with the daily management and provision of continuity care to patients with life-limiting illnesses through the use of multidisciplinary care teams assembled to meet the unique medical, spiritual, and emotional quality of life wishes of the patient. Fellows will be a valuable member of the patient's diverse care team which also includes social workers, chaplains, family members, and specialists from a variety of medical specialties.
The Hospice and Palliative Care Fellowship is a newly established ACGME Accredited program in 2020. The Fellowship enrolled its first two fellows July 2021. Fellows who successfully complete the program will be board certification eligible.
