Hospice and Palliative Fellows experience a broad range of educational opportunities consistent with those recommended by the American College of Graduate Medical Education.

Palliative Core Didactics Small Group Sessions:

Once a week, the fellows attend formal didactics on key Palliative Care topics and other aspects of patient care. Teaching occurs in a small group format taught by experts from the faculty members from Palliative Care, Geriatrics, Cardiology, Neurology, Hematology & Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Pediatrics, Psychology, Psychiatry, Quality Improvement, Ethics and many others. All of these talks are in small group format designed specifically to allow fellows to interact freely with expert faculty in a respectful learning climate.

Interprofessional Palliative Care seminars: 

In these weekly sessions, palliative care fellows from the disciplines of medicine, psychology, social work and chaplaincy train together and are taught by an interprofessional faculty.

Interprofessional Palliative Care Journal Club:

Fellows and faculty members present and review the latest  journal articles and topics relevant to Palliative care.

Communication Workshops:

Fellows participant in skills based sessions with simulated patients and faculty facilitators to get targeted feedback on their communication skills.

Palliative Care Grand Rounds: 

Once a month speaker series for fellows and teams across all sites to explore topics and issues relevant to Palliative Care.
