Hospice & Palliative Medicine Fellowship

Washington University School of Medicine and the Barnes-Jewish Hospital Palliative Care Service are excited to announce the creation of a new Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship.  This will be a one-year ACGME-accredited program which will commence in July 2017.  The goal of this program is to promote excellence in Hospice and Palliative Medicine education and clinical care, to develop future leaders in the field, and to ensure that patients with life-limiting illness receive informed, professional, and appropriate care.  We are currently recruiting two candidates for our fellowship program.  Trainees will work with services at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, Saint Louis Children’s Hospital, and the Saint Louis Veterans Administration Medical Centers to prepare for a career in Hospice and Palliative Medicine.  Our highly-qualified interdisciplinary teams include physicians, nurse practitioners, social workers, and chaplains.  Fellows will be eligible to obtain board certification in Hospice and Palliative Medicine at the completion of their training.

We will offer our trainees a diverse educational experience, including both outpatient and inpatient clinical teaching, didactic teaching, research opportunities, resiliency & leadership training, and communication skills.  You can find a complete list of our fellowship’s curriculum offerings here.
