International Palliative Medicine Fellowship Program
Specialist training for doctors who want to be palliative medicine experts and focus their career on palliative care.
The International Palliative Medicine Fellowship Program (IPMF), with the assistance of the San Diego County Medical Society, provides expert-level bedside training at IPMSDH and in-country for physicians who want to be consultants/master teachers/opinion leaders in their country. Over a 2-3 year training period, each fellow makes 5-6 visits to IPMSDH for an average of four weeks per visit. Based on the U.S. Palliative Medicine Fellowship training standards, a customized learning plan is developed for each fellow.
In the future, new Fellowship Programs for members of interdisciplinary teams will make specialty training programs available to nurses, pharmacists, social workers, spiritual and bereavement counselors.
