Hospice & Palliative Medicine Fellowship
About The Program
The Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship program is a one-year community-based training program. It's designed to provide fellows with the education and training to become expert palliative medicine physicians by participating in our curriculum involving clinical care, didactic and experiential learning.
Led by our palliative medicine physician faculty and many other interdisciplinary team members, all fellows receive intensive training in the care of seriously ill patients and their families as part of an interdisciplinary team.Welcome from the Program Director

Mission & Goals

Palliative medicine focuses on symptom management and goals of care as an adjunct to other disease-directed care services—just like cardiology or gastroenterology assists the primary care team.
Hospice medicine focuses on the same symptom management and goals of care at the end of life. Rather than an adjunct to care, hospice assumes full responsibility for patient needs when time is short.
NGMC is unique in that we have two separate departments (Hospice and Palliative) that work beautifully together. It’s a division of labor that can seem tricky at first, but makes for a smooth transition for our patients. We trust the expertise of each service (and each location within the services), and frequently bounce cases off each other to make sure we’re pooling all resources
We accept applications through ERAS.
