Goal: Evaluate and Manage Clinical Issues
in End-of-Life Care
Situated in the beautiful Lehigh Valley in Eastern Pennsylvania, St. Luke's Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship is committed to recruiting outstanding primary care physicians to train in a unique and challenging interdisciplinary environment.
The overall goal of this training experience is to teach the primary care physician to evaluate and manage clinical issues in hospice and palliative medicine. The fellow's clinical activities allow for close mentoring and supervision, while providing the opportunity for a great deal of autonomy and independence. The goals of the fellowship are accomplished by providing care to a number of medical settings including inpatient consultation at an acute care hospital, inpatient hospice unit, home hospice service and an outpatient palliative medicine clinic.
