Overview of Clinical Activities and Responsibilities

The Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship Program curriculum has been specifically designed to ensure that each fellow has the opportunity to achieve the knowledge, professional attitudes, and practical experience required of a physician caring for the elderly patient. Each fellow will participate in and will be closely supervised by trained faculty in the clinical activities described below. Each portion of the fellowship has clearly defined expectations, objectives, and goals. 

Both the preceptor and the fellow are expected to complete timely written evaluations. As peer interaction is essential for the fellows, each fellow will gain experience teaching nurses, allied health personnel, medical students, and residents both in a structured and in an informal way.
