The Hospice and Palliative Medicine (HPM) Fellowship at St. Elizabeth Healthcare provides a unique community setting for fellows to collaborate in interdisciplinary teams and work in partnership with specialties that provide care to patients with advanced illness, across the healthcare continuum.
The main focus of the HPM Fellowship Program is to embody and model the medical, spiritual and psycho-social dimensions in patient and family-centered care. We train clinicians to care for patients living with a serious illness, using a comprehensive medical, psychosocial, and spiritual curriculum taught by a dedicated and experienced faculty.
After completing this 12-month fellowship, candidates are well prepared to successfully pass the HPM board examination and ready to pursue leadership roles that may include an inpatient, outpatient or home-based palliative service or a community hospice program.
Special consideration will be given to mid-career physicians who may want to complete the curriculum on a part time basis.
Our Program benefit package is competitive. In addition to excellent medical benefits, all meals are furnished during duty hours with an additional weekly dinner for your family. We also provide free parking across all locations!
