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.

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.
