Description The Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship Program at Indiana University School of Medicine trains physicians to develop expertise in the care of patients with serious illness and become leaders in hospice and palliative care. Fellows participate in a blend of clinical experiences and small group learning throughout the one year fellowship program to ensure that fellows are prepared to practice palliative care in a variety of settings. Fellows in the ACGME accredited Palliative Medicine Fellowship program have the opportunity to experience providing palliative care in public, VA, and private community hospitals throughout the year. Fellows can also experience comprehensive global health education through an elective rotation at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret, Kenya in partnership with AMPATH and IU School of Medicine Global Health. We participate in the NRMP Match program. Applicants must be Board Eligible or Board Certified in one of the American Board of Medical Specialties’ primary boards. For more information see:
