Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship

Training in Hospice and Palliative Care

BIDMC Hospice and Palliative Medicine fellows

The Hospice and Palliative Medicine fellowship at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and Boston VA is an ACGME-accredited training program housed in the Department of Medicine at BIDMC. Through our fellowship program, we’re training the next generation of leading clinicians, educators, team members, and thought leaders working to advance the care of patients and caregivers facing serious illness.

As a fellow, you’ll gain broad clinical experience over the course of this yearlong program and immerse yourself in the care of a diverse patient population across multiple teams and settings. In addition to preparing you for your HPM board certification, our cutting-edge educational curriculum addresses a wide range of topics including serious illness communication, medical education, patient safety, and quality improvement. Graduates of our program have an ongoing track record of scholarship during the training year and have gone on to improve hospice and palliative care here in Boston, across the United States, and around the world.

On behalf of our faculty, clinicians, colleagues, and teammates at both our flagship and affiliate clinical sites, we welcome you to the BI-VA HPM program!
