Clinician Education

Opportunities to learn about palliative care for every stage of training.

Providing Training at Every Stage

Our palliative care team is committed and dedicated to teaching the next generation of health care providers. Whether that is the next leaders in hospice and palliative medicine or a new cadre of generalists and specialists prepared to provide essential primary palliative care to all of their patients, our team offers educational opportunities to health care providers at all stages of training. 

Because palliative care is provided by an interdisciplinary team, we also strive to provide learning opportunities for a variety of non-physician providers including advanced practice providers, nurse practitioners, certified nurse specialists, social workers, physician assistants and chaplains.

Palliative Care Always Online Course

Palliative Care Always is a specialization for health care practitioners, patients and caregivers. We’ve designed this specialization to demonstrate how palliative medicine integrates with patient care, and to help you develop primary palliative care skills. Over five courses, you will develop skills in symptom management, goals of care and effective communication to improve the quality of life for patients and families suffering with serious illness. Our hope is that you feel increasingly equipped to support the diverse needs of your patients and your own needs.
