Learning Tracks

To offer options to meet each individual’s career goals and background, the Palliative Medicine Fellowship program at Mount Sinai has created three separate learning tracks. The programs vary in length and focus. Only physicians considering a career in academic medicine – as either a clinician-investigator or clinician-educator – are eligible for the fellowship program at Mount Sinai.

Each track has a degree of flexibility and can be tailored to meet the needs of individual physicians. Fellows in each of these tracks have the option of pursuing an additional year of protected time for research at Mount Sinai if they desire a career as a clinician-investigator. These individuals are required to obtain a Master of Science in Clinical Research through the Clinical Research Training Program (CRTP) over the course of their time at Mount Sinai.

If you have questions about the tracks or your eligibility to pursue one of them, please send an e-mail to pallcarefellowship@mssm.edu.

Applicants from other Specialties

The subspecialty of Hospice & Palliative Medicine has ten parent boards which serve as its co-sponsors under the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). They include:

Emergency Medicine
Family Medicine
Internal Medicine
Obstetrics and Gynecology
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
Psychiatry and Neurology

While we at Mount Sinai support and value the multidisciplinary nature of palliative medicine, our fellowship is focused on training internists and family medicine physicians. Applicants from other specialties will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Since palliative medicine is firmly based in the principles of internal medicine, individuals who have completed training in fields other than internal or family medicine may be required to complete additional coursework/rotations before they begin their clinical work at Mount Sinai.
