Hospice & Palliative Medicine Fellowship

Expert training for caring for patients in the toughest of times.

The mission of the Colorado Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship is to develop specialty-level palliative physicians who are outstanding clinician-educators (or researchers) and are prepared to assume leadership roles in palliative care or in their primary specialty with a palliative care focus.

The Colorado Hospice and Palliative Medicine Medicine Fellowship program provides comprehensive palliative care education and clinical experiences for physicians seeking to specialize in hospice and palliative medicine. The fellowship curriculum consists of one year, clinically-focused experience.

Applicants interested in an academic career should be aware that a unique palliative care research opportunity is also available through Dr. Jean Kutner, a national leader in palliative care research. These training experiences may be arranged sequentially; applicants with interest in both the clinical and research training should discuss with the fellowship director.
