Welcome to the University of South Florida Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship Program. The fields of hospice and palliative care are rapidly expanding to meet the symptom, support and communication needs of patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families. Given these needs and opportunities for clinical, educational and research leadership, we are excited that you are considering hospice and palliative medicine fellowship training as the next step in your career development.
USF’s program is a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship established July 2008 and developed in partnership with Chapters Health Care AKA LifePath Hospice, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center, James A. Haley Veterans Hospital and Tampa General Hospital to ensure that fellows receive outstanding palliative medicine and hospice training with diverse patient populations and clinical settings. Since, 34 fellows have graduated from our program. An educational curriculum on symptom management, communication skills training, interprofessional care of patients and families and self-care complements the clinical rotations. In addition, eight Hospice and Palliative Medicine board-certified faculty at USF and multiple interprofessional team members are dedicated educators committed to promoting fellows’ professional and personal growth. Fellows will be eligible to obtain board certification in Hospice and Palliative Medicine at the completion of their training.
