About the Program

Hello, I am excited that you are considering the AdventHealth Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship. Hospice and Palliative Medicine is a gift that allows us to help the most vulnerable. You will take part in the lives of patients and families during a most difficult and sacred time. I hope you find that gift as rewarding as I do.

At AdventHealth’s HPM Fellowship you will find a location rich with varied opportunities and potential for personal growth. I am dedicated to providing you with tools to become excellent clinicians, leaders, and advocates for our patients no matter which area of HPM you choose to focus.

Training Sites

As one of the largest healthcare systems in the US, we have plenty of opportunities for you to grow with us after fellowship. AdventHealth is a faith-based organization, but we are welcoming of providers of all beliefs. I believe part of our team’s strength is our diversity.

The multidisciplinary environment of AdventHealth Orlando campus serves as the major training site for the fellowship with additional teaching sites to include AdventHealth Winter Park, AdventHealth Hospice Care Central Florida, and various outpatient geriatric and long-term care facilities. Training at the various locations of AdventHealth exposes our fellows to a broad and diverse patient base.

AdventHealth Orlando, is a 2,247-bed faith-based non-profit, tertiary, research, and academic medical center located in Orlando, Florida. It serves as a community hospital for Greater Orlando and a major tertiary referral facility for much of the Southeast, Caribbean, and South America.

AdventHealth Orlando is also home to multiple GME training programs such as internal medicine, general surgery and colon and rectal surgery fellowship and hosts rotating medical students from Loma Linda University School of Medicine, Florida State University School of Medicine, and Nova Southeastern University College of Medicine.
