Fellowship Programs

University of Washington Palliative Medicine Fellowship Program




The fellowship program trains Fellows in Palliative Medicine at the UW School of Medicine and accepts up to 4 post-residency physicians per year.


The faculty represents all major teaching sites and primary disciplines of palliative medicine within the UW School of Medicine.  Core and affiliated UW faculty provide training in clinical care, research, and leadership, in keeping with all ACGME core competencies.


Clinical rotations include inpatient consult services, inpatient palliative care units, affiliated long term care facilities, home-based palliative care experiences including hospice care, and ambulatory outpatient clinics. Elective rotations include geriatrics, oncology, nephrology, pulmonary / ICU, interventional pain management, interventional radiology, radiation oncology, dementia units, and AIDS/HIV care settings.


The fellowship provides a mentored training experience to develop fellows' clinical skills, ensure core competency development as educators and program administrators, provide exposure to research and quality improvement, thereby fostering the development of future leaders in palliative care medicine.


The program includes comprehensive evaluation of individual fellows, faculty, and the training program. Each UW-affiliated institution has made major commitments to build and sustain an outstanding environment for palliative care practice and training.
