The adult track is our flagship program, inspired by the vision of Stu Farber, MD to train an interprofessional cohort of healthcare providers in palliative care skills. Students represent a wide variety of clinicians working across ambulatory, inpatient and chronic care settings.
The pediatric track was created in response to the need for quality trained pediatric palliative clinicians in all areas of pediatric practice. Our pediatric track attracts a diverse group of clinicians including nurses, physicians, APPs, spiritual care providers and social workers.
