Clinical Schedule 

Our one-year fellowship offers a rigorous interdisciplinary education in palliative care at UAB Hospitals, the Birmingham VA Medical Center, and Children's of Alabama.  Fellows receive training in the outpatient setting through the UAB Supportive Care & Survivorship Clinic, home-based palliative care, and through partnerships with community hospices and long term care facilities.  Time devoted to pediatrics can be adjusted based on interest and career goals.

Fellows have ample protected time to learn from one another and from faculty within our Section and across the UAB medical campus.  Didactic sessions are held weekly and are paired with readings from a seminal text and key articles in palliative medicine.  Fellows may attend Grand Rounds in various specialties throughout the week as per their area of interest.Fellowship Education schedule
