Hospice and Palliative Medicine: St. Joseph's

The Hospice and Palliative Medicine fellowship at St. Joseph Hospital and Medical Center is a one-year program designed to train physicians to perform thorough clinical and diagnostic assessments, provide high quality, evidence-based, compassionate patient care, and demonstrate life-long learning in this evolving subspecialty field.

Through the course of fellowship training, a fellow is expected to acquire progressively increasing competency in knowledge, professional attitudes, and skills in the hospice and palliative medicine discipline. Completion of the training program is based on the achievement of program-specific competencies and performance parameters, including specific cognitive, clinical, technical skills and professional and ethical conduct, as measured in periodical evaluations.
