• UC Davis Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship

Welcome to the UC Davis Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship program's informational website.  This fellowship is jointly administered by UC Davis Health System,  VA Northern CA Health Care System, and Kaiser Permanente.

While much of our program information and details are listed here, we strongly urge you to visit us in Northern California and learn about who we are, what we do, and how you might join us.

We are an ACGME Accredited program and accept  two (2) fellows in Hospice and Palliative Medicine on a yearly basis.  Our one (1) year program is designed to allow for a combination of clinical experiences and of creative/research/elective time to fulfill the training requirements for Board Certification in Hospice and Palliative Medicine. The program is designed for Diplomates of the American Boards of Internal Medicine, Anesthesiology, Family Medicine, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Psychiatry and Neurology, Surgery, Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine, Radiology, and Obstetrics and Gynecology. We also have an option for a second research year for candidates who are interested in pursuing further academic endeavors.

We appreciate your interest and look forward to meeting you.
