The Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship (HPM) at the University of Missouri is a year-long program devoted to training physician-educators in the delivery of interdisciplinary palliative care.

Building on a strong tradition and culture of excellent patient care, education, and scholarship, our HPM program is committed to training comprehensive, capable, and compassionate physicians.  We expect our graduates to be outstanding clinicians, teachers and leaders in hospice and palliative medicine – capable of a lifetime of contributions to the health and welfare of patients and their family members.
