 Palliative Medicine Schedule

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The curriculum is comprehensive, and designed to reach all milestones of palliative medicine specialist training.

Building on the core of patient care, training includes didactic core lectures, case conferences, journal club, opportunity for research, and close faculty tutoring - all in the setting of a reflective, philosophical approach to suffering and medicine. 

The palliative medicine fellow will hold hands with the dying and manage a ventilator on the PCU, adjust intrathecal opioids and speak at a bereavement service, resolve a pain crisis and reflect on existential issues. 

The successful palliative medicine fellow will be a competent, caring specialist physician and educator in Palliative Medicine.
