MGH Adult Nurse Practitioner Fellowship

Our interprofessional fellowship model is unique among post graduate training programs in palliative care.  The fellowship cohort includes nurse practitioners, physicians, and a pharmacist. Fellowship training includes site-specific clinical supervision on the Palliative Care Service and clinical electives offsite to train clinicians to care of individuals with serious illness in the domains of pain and symptom management, psycho-social issues, advance care planning, interdisciplinary collaboration, and various delivery models in palliative care and hospice.

All Nurse Fellowships:  Adult and pediatric nurse fellows join the entire Harvard Interprofessional Palliative Care Fellowship cohort for a robust academic curriculum which includes: classroom lectures by expert interprofessional clinicians, completion of a quality improvement projects, teaching experience for small group clinician education, and preparing Palliative Care Grand Rounds podium lecture. Mentoring by nurse preceptors and interprofessional faculty enhance the fellow’s integration of concepts into specialty nursing practice.
