Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University

Hospice & Palliative Medicine Fellowship

Candidates of any qualifying specialty must have completed an accredited residency prior to start of fellowship.  The HPM Fellowship is accredited by the ACGME.

Fellows will be trained by physicians who are board certified in HPM as well as in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics and Geriatrics.   Our 12 month fellowship will bring trainees through the areas of clinical expertise essential for any HPM clinician in today’s world.  This includes:

  • Inpatient Palliative Care Consultation
  • Outpatient Palliative Care Clinic
  • Inpatient Hospice
  • Home Hospice
  • Long Term Care
  • Pediatric Palliative Care
  • Variety of elective rotations (including, but not limited to, Radiation Oncology, Medical Oncology, Geriatrics, Intensive Care Unit, etc.)

Fellows will also have the opportunity to participate in departmental research activities, resident and medical student education and other administrative responsibilities.

The faculty at TJUH are committed to maximizing the health and quality of life of older persons and those with serious illness by partnering with patients, their families and the communities within which they live.  We are confident that our trainees will not only experience these qualities but that they will also foster their own skills which are essential to providing quality care for their patients.
