Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship Program

For physicians who wish to advance their knowledge in our specialty, the University of Pittsburgh Section of Palliative Care and Medical Ethics, in the Division of General Internal Medicine, offers an intensive and rigorous clinical training fellowship.

Comprehensive Concentration

Whether you plan to practice in a hospital, outpatient, or hospice environment, this fellowship will prepare you to meet the needs of your patients. We focus on symptom assessment and management, but we also stress the importance of communication among all parties — patients, families, and health care professionals.

For those interested in teaching, we also offer the opportunity to earn a certificate in medical education through the University of Pittsburgh.

Career-Specific Tracks

The Fellowship Program offers two options:

  • The one-year clinical fellowship, accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), is offered by the Section of Palliative Care and Medical Ethics at the University of Pittsburgh. It includes a high-volume, interdisciplinary clinical program with an opportunity to earn a certificate in medical education.
  • The two-year fellowship option, for students who seek an academic career in palliative medicine, offers the opportunity to earn a master's degree in either medical education or clinical research.
