The Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship consists of several experiences, including core lecture series, conferences and didactics. The core lecture series orients fellows to specific pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic management of symptoms. Fellows will also be introduced to expressive and supportive care teams, such as music therapy, art therapy, child life, spiritual care, social workers, etc.

Conferences include:

  • Board review preparation course in the spring with local fellowship programs, led by the National Institutes of Health (NIH)
  • Journal club with palliative care team
  • Didactic lectures with adult hospice and palliative care fellows

Ongoing didactics are with inpatient consult service, inpatient and home hospice, pain team, long-term care facility, elective and education time.


A quality improvement project is required to be completed during this one-year fellowship.
