Welcome to the Hospice and Palliative Medicine at Rochester General Hospital! The Palliative Care team is elated to offer this fellowship. Since my training at Yale University fifteen years ago and my clinical training at Emory University, I have witnessed the remarkable growth within the field. More than ever, there is recognition for the need for multidisciplinary care that considers exceptional symptom management and the goals of the patient, family and loved ones. The current workforce has a critical need – more than ever – to train compassionate and skilled clinicians in Hospice and Palliative Medicine.
Thank you again for considering our fellowship program and Hospice and Palliative Medicine as the next part of your training. We hope to hear from you soon, and in the interim, please read more or contact us to learn more about our program.
We look forward to meeting you,
Adam Herman, MD
