We recognize that the HPM clinical fellowship represents a significant growth experience over one year. Confronting serious illness as a full-time job is rewarding but also intense, emotional work. Thus, attending to our learners’ personal wellness and empowering them to be well are team priorities at BIDMC and across our affiliate sites. This emphasis is reflected formally in our curriculum’s biweekly Care for the Caregiver sessions, which include fellows-only sessions to process and reflect on the training experience with guidance from a clinical psychologist, and monthly listening/reflection sessions shared by fellows and program leadership. Fellows also have access to mental health support through free and confidential programs at BIDMC and the Boston VA.
