Palliative Care Research Fellowship

We now offer a two-year research fellowship opportunity that can follow the clinical year of training. A separate application will be required, and applicants from any discipline with a demonstrated interest in research are encouraged to apply. The goal of this fellowship is to develop the necessary skills to advance to independent investigators in palliative care.

Harvard Palliative Care Fellowship in Medical Education

This one-year fellowship in Medical Education follows the clinical year of training and is open to fellows who are enrolled in or who have completed the Harvard Palliative Medicine Fellowship. A separate application is required. The goal of this fellowship is to develop expertise in medical education as it relates to palliative care through mentored teaching experiences and by conceptualizing and completing a project in medical education. Fellows will be located at one clinical site (MGH or DFCI/BWH) and may develop their project either locally or internationally.  Funding may vary from year to year.

Interested fellows should contact the fellowship leadership, Dr. Juliet Jacobsen (jjacobsen@partners.org) and Dr. Jane deLima Thomas (jane_thomas@dfci.harvard.edu).
