Welcome to the fellowship in hospice and palliative medicine in the department of pediatrics at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville. This program is accredited through the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, or ACGME. This fellowship program provides a robust and diverse experience in caring for adult and pediatric patients with chronic medical conditions along the care continuum from palliative care to hospice level of care. The collaborating partners include Community Hospice and Palliative Care of Northeast Florida, Wolfson Children’s Hospital, and Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital. This ACGME-approved one-year fellowship has two positions: one position with an adult focus and one with a pediatric focus.

The fellows' training includes several locations unique to Jacksonville Florida including UF Health Proton Therapy Institute, Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital for both adults and children, community hospice providing home-based hospice care to the greater Jacksonville area for both adults and children and dedicated outpatient clinics for children and young adults with chronic medical conditions (JaxHATS and Bower Lyman Center for Medically Complex Children).

If you are interested in applying to our program please submit an application through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).

Thank you again for your interest in our hospice and palliative medicine fellowship. For additional information or further inquiries, please contact us.
