The Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship at Presence Resurrection Medical Center is designed to educate fellows to provide expert palliative and end-of-life compassionate care to diverse populations. We are committed to the education of the next generation of physician specialists for a full-time career in academic or community-based palliative care and hospice.
The fellowship also provides fellows with the skills required to disseminate the principles of palliative medicine through teaching and research. This curriculum closely follows the Hospice and Palliative Medicine Core Competencies established by the American Osteopathic Association, with Pre-Accreditation for ACGME in preparation for the Single Accreditation System for Graduate Medical Education.
Fellows will participate in a wide range of experiences. This includes inpatient consult services, inpatient hospice/palliative care units, long-term care facilities, a palliative medicine ambulatory clinic, related specialty electives, home hospice programs, and experiences in the hospice director role engaging in systems based and health policy applications.
