Description UICOMP, in association with OSF HealthCare Saint Francis Medical Center and OSF Hospice, and Cancer Services, started the ACGME accredited subspecialty program in Hospice and Palliative Medicine in July 2018. Our fellowship consists of a one-year training program which follows the completion of an ACGME accredited residency in Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Neurology, Physical and Rehab Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Psychiatry, Surgery, or OB/GYN. Our training program in HPM aims to equip our fellows with the knowledge, resources, and skill set needed to excel. We have devised a flexible schedule with a tailored curriculum and ample elective options to meet the individual fellow’s interests. Fellows have opportunities to focus on clinical, academic, research, or administrative skills. They are exposed to a wide variety of inpatient, outpatient, home, and skilled nursing settings, including a dedicated hospice inpatient facility. Additionally, opportunities lie with pediatric palliative care.
