The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship Program is an ACGME accredited fellowship program seeking to fill to open fellowship positions for the 2019-2020 academic year.
The Hospice & Palliative Medicine Fellowship at UT Health San Antonio has been accredited since 2008. Fellows rotate in the Audie Murphy VA Hospital and University Hospital in San Antonio, Texas. Our graduates have gone on to become clinician-educators and investigators at academic centers and leaders in community-based practices.
UT Health San Antonio was one of the first programs to institute an ACGME approved 2 year combined fellowship in Geriatric Medicine and Palliative Care Medicine. This program allows fellows to combine common requirements of each program, creating more elective time to pursue scholarly interests. Graduates of this program go on to academic careers or clinical leadership positions.
Fellows benefit from a large and diverse group of co-trainees. Fellowship activities and didactics include our geriatric medicine fellows, our palliative care medicine fellows (the largest palliative fellowship in the country), and our interprofessional fellows (nurses, chaplains, social workers, pharmacists, and psychologists). Up to 20 learners in the fellowship cohort!
Please contact Krysta Sargent, Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 210-567-5311 on how to apply to the program.
