TrustBridge Health is proud to partner with the University of Miami/JFK Medical Center Palm Beach Regional Graduate Medical Education Consortium in offering an ACGME accredited Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship Program. Participating institutions include: JFK Medical Center, West Palm Beach Veterans Administration Medical Center, and TrustBridge Health.
TrustBridge Health was created to combine Hospice of Palm Beach County and Hospice by the Sea. These two not-for-profit hospice organizations have provided the highest level of compassionate end-of-life care to nearly 200,000 patients and families in Palm Beach and Broward counties since 1978. In addition to hospice services, TrustBridge Health offers FocusCare Home Health and Harbor Palliative Care Services. Together, they care for patients and families from the initial onset of a serious illness through end-of-life care. The Fellowship program contributes to quality end-of-life care by educating physicians in the latest treatments and care relevant to terminally ill patients' physical, psychosocial and spiritual needs. TrustBridge Health’s 37-year legacy of compassionate hospice care is the philosophical cornerstone behind the program and "caring" is woven throughout the fellowship experience. Fellows learn the art and science of hospice and palliative medicine while working in a compassionate environment.
This rigorous, year-long clinical fellowship is a pathway for clinicians who are interested in achieving excellence in palliative medicine. The program is designed to further physician education in palliative medicine through practical training and experience in multiple clinical and residential settings with a variety of patients and their families. The selected fellows gain knowledge through lectures, discussions and mentoring. Fellows experience a program where the way things are done is just as important as the treatments themselves.
