The Hospice and Palliative Medicine fellows typically begin training July 1 and complete the clinical training by June 30 of the following year.

Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship applicants must apply through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).

Applicants for the Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship are selected using the following criteria. Candidates must:

  • Have completed an ACGME accredited Internal Medicine or Family Medicine residency program
  • Have graduated from an accredited U.S. or Canadian medical college, or have an appropriate certification from the ECFMG.
  • Be a United States citizen or have a green card or J-1 visa.
  • Demonstrate academic productivity and clinical competence as defined by publications/grants and letters of evaluation from faculty mentors.

Acceptance of fellows transferring from other programs will routinely not be permitted.

After review of a completed ERAS application, applicants are invited for an interview, a required component of the application process. Applicants will receive, upon their interview, written notice of the terms of employment. Faculty and fellows will have the opportunity to interact and evaluate all applicants and their credentials.

The section faculty will review the evaluations of each applicant and generate a list of candidates based on their levels of acceptability. The Program Director will finalize and submit the Rank List. All applicants will be selected through the NRMP. If the applicant matches, the fellow is sent a letter of offer to be signed and returned.
