About the Program
The Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship offered through Kettering Health’s Soin Medical Center and Ohio’s Hospice will prepare two fellows per year to become outstanding compassionate clinicians who will be well prepared to care for patients and families at all stages of complex serious illness and end-of-life care.
The fellowship is a sub-specialty for physicians who are starting out in their medical careers or for those who are mid-career and want to move into this field of medicine. Fellows will recognize the challenges of caring for patients at the end of life, the pressures of cumulative grief, and the art of living with dying. Faculty will mentor the fellows in the values of healthy lifestyles, presence, mindfulness and the art of caring for each other.
Hospice care is compassionate care for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury. It involves a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support tailored to a patient’s needs. Through Pure Healthcare, Ohio’s Hospice offers palliative care, which provides individualized, person-centered medical and supportive care services to help non-hospice patients and individuals managing chronic conditions such as heart disease, lung disease, cancer and dementia.
The mission of the fellowship in hospice and palliative medicine is to inspire physicians who will join us as outstanding clinicians and dedicated teachers who view their role as that of servant leaders in their medical community and in society.
