Training

The Harvard Medical School Center for Palliative Care is excited to offer the following fellowship opportunities:

Harvard Interprofessional Palliative Care Fellowship Program

The Harvard Interprofessional Palliative Care Fellowship Program is a one-year clinical program that trains future leaders in the comprehensive, interdisciplinary care of seriously ill patients and their families.

Four types of fellowships are offered:

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Research Fellowship in Psychosocial Oncology and Palliative Care

This two-year research fellowship opportunity can follow the year of clinical training. The program is directed toward physicians, psychologists, doctorally prepared nurses, social workers, and other clinicians who wish to prepare themselves for an academic research career in palliative care or psychosocial oncology. The goal of this fellowship is to train early investigators prepared to move these fields forward through the conduct of highest-quality research. A separate application is required.  For more information, visit their website or contact POPCResearchFellowship@partners.org.

Program in Global Palliative Care

The mission of the Program in Global Palliative Care (PGPC) is to help prevent and relieve unnecessary suffering among the global poor by reducing the global disparity in access to palliative care and pain control.

Directed by Eric L. Krakauer, MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Medicine and of Global Health & Social Medicine, the PGPC assists Ministries of Health, hospitals, healthcare training institutions, and other partners in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to integrate palliative care into comprehensive care of patients with serious chronic, complex, or life-threatening health problems in ways that are sustainable, strengthen healthcare systems, provide financial risk protection for patients and families, and contribute to universal health coverage.
