Committed to changing the way medical care is delivered to those facing serious illness and those at the end of life, the MGH Palliative Care Divsion emphasizes the comprehensive, interdisciplinary nature of palliative care. We strongly believe that good medicine is at the heart of our growing area of specialization, but its foundation also rests upon excellence in psychosocial and spiritual care, ethics, and multidisciplinary teamwork across a variety of clinic settings.
