Hospice & Palliative Medicine Fellowship

Maine Medical Center’s Hospice and Palliative Care Fellowship 

Our Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship was established in 2013.  This one year training program in adult palliative medicine is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Our program, established in 2013, is a one year training program, in adult palliative medicine fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).  Our principal training sites are Maine Medical Center, the Veterans Administration Hospital in Augusta and Hospice of Southern Maine.   The program presently enrolls 2 fellows per year.  Applicants come from a variety of residencies and we consider all graduates of affiliated residency programs.

Our program offers a broad clinical experience covering inpatient consults, outpatient consults and continued care, hospice care both inpatient and at home, as well as exposure to pediatric palliative care. 

The purpose of this Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship is to provide training and experience that ultimately prepares a graduate of a primary specialty program to become a competent palliative medicine physician, such that the Fellow is able to function effectively in either academic medical centers or community-based programs.  Goals are based on the competencies defined and required by the ACGME, and are fulfilled by the experiences offered to fellows during each rotation. 

We are happy to speak with you further.  Feel free to contact us!
