Palliative Care Education Programs
Education programs in palliative medicine and hospice provide multi-disciplinary training to doctors, psychologists, nurses and students. Palliative care specialty training provides these practitioners with the tools to help patients and families who are experiencing advanced disease or serious medical conditions.
Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship Program
The Ohio State University Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship is a well-established ACGME-accredited program devoted to training future physicians and leaders in the care of patients with serious illness. The one-year program accepts four physicians as fellows to prepare them to launch successful palliative medicine careers in ambulatory, hospice or hospital-based settings with diverse patient populations.
Psycho-Oncology Fellowship Program
The Psycho-Oncology Fellowship is for clinical psychologists, and combines psychosocial oncology training with palliative care specialization. Fellows will have specific expertise in symptom management and end-of-life care. The primary goal of the Psycho-Oncology Fellowship is to prepare future clinical psychologists to provide transdisciplinary care for patients with chronic or life-limiting illness.
End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC)
This program has been developed to prepare qualified nurse educators to provide end-of-life education for nursing students and practicing nurses, and to provide resources to facilitate that instruction.
