The UTHSC HPM Fellowship is an ACGME accredited, adult and pediatric program that trains 6 fellows annually. The training utilizes inpatient, hospice and ambulatory settings to provide fellows with the knowledge and experience they need to deliver high quality care along the age and disease continuum. This includes intensive symptom management, intentional communication skills in discussion of goals of care, advance care planning, redirection of care and transition from a focus of cure to comfort.  Our mission is to train our fellows to provide this care with a compassionate patient- and family-centered approach while maintaining appropriate balance in self-care, self-reflection and professional boundaries.
