Clinical Rotations

The fellows will be actively involved in working with the interdisciplinary teams in a variety of clinical settings. The fellow will rotate in the following clinical activities, with attention to ensuring the fellow integrates seeing patients across these care settings.


Regional Fellows' Conferences: In order to foster camaraderie and collegiality with all the Chicago-area fellows, we have established a regional fellows' conference series with the other two hospice and palliative medicine fellowships in Chicago at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and The University of Chicago. These monthly half-day sessions are rotated between institutions to allow the fellows to learn from all the academic palliative medicine faculty in Chicago. The sessions lay the foundation for core topics in palliative medicine through a formal, structured teaching session over the course of the academic year. The series in presented in a variety of formats, including didactic, interactive, case-based discussions and role play. Fellows are excused from their assigned rotation and are expected to attend the sessions.
