The fellow will care for a full range of adult and pediatric patients (including perinatal palliative care) with a wide variety of conditions both chronic and acute. The fellow works as a physician-in-training member of the interdisciplinary team in providing whole person care.

The fellow will be supervised in all patient care interactions, at a level commensurate with their level of training as determined by the program director. The fellow will learn independently (without personal clinical supervision) to perform a comprehensive palliative care evaluation of a patient and family.

The fellow will be responsible for daily rounding, assessment and medical decision-making including pain and symptom management, goals of care conversations, and family conferences.

The fellow will be responsible for new consultation and follow-up visits in both the inpatient and outpatient setting.

The fellow is expected to develop the competency to only have “verbal staffing” required; faculty will still be expected to personally confirm key details of fellow evaluation and medical decision-making.
