The University of Washington Palliative Medicine Fellowship Program offers a
unique training experience with a diverse patient population across multi-sites
in the Seattle area.
The fellows receive comprehensive palliative medicine training in outpatient, inpatient, long term care, hospice located in various UW sites of training and affiliate community sites. There are strong faculty role models in research, education, and clinical care to develop the skills for future leaders of palliative medicine.
The patient populations fellows encounter and engage in care are extremely diverse, from failed bone marrow transplant patients to immigrant, refugee, and socio-economically deprived persons, veterans and profoundly ill children at Seattle Childrens. Fellows not only see patients of diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, but also of diverse age, level of debility, and condition.
