University of Nebraska Medical Center

Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship

The state of Nebraska currently has limited access to specialty level palliative care services. The UNMC fellowship in hospice and palliative medicine aims to improve access to and quality of palliative care services in the state of Nebraska and surrounding region by training physicians to expand the palliative care workforce at a specialty level.

Graduates will also improve palliative care services indirectly through teaching primary palliative care skills to colleagues and medical learners as well as through leadership roles in their future work environments. While initial goals focus on developing graduates to become expert clinicians, clinician educators and leaders within their health systems, future aims for the program will include further focus on research and public health initiatives.
