GeriatricsPalliative Medicine Fellowships

Since 1999, we have offered fellowships in Palliative Medicine. In 2008, we received ACGME accreditation for our Hospice and Palliative Medicine fellowship, which is open to physicians from a wide variety of medical or surgical specialties. In addition, nurses, social workers, psychologists or chaplains desiring an intensive, one-year clinical experience in palliative medicine also participate in the Interprofessional Palliative Care Fellowship Program sponsored by the South Texas Veterans Health Care System Audie L. Murphy Memorial Hospital . Fellows from both programs participate together in weekly didactic and discussion sessions facilitated by members of our Division or other Faculty and Staff.
