Scholarly Activity

In order to encourage and foster a life-long interest in learning and teaching, Hospice and Palliative Medicine (HPM) Fellows are required to complete a scholarly activity during their fellowship. This project does not necessarily need to involve novel research, but can include development of an educational curriculum; completion of a draft of an HPM-related journal article; or presentation at a regional or national convention. 

HPM Fellows are provided with protected time to complete this scholarly activity, and meet quarterly with Dr. Victoria Powell to identify a project and mentor. At the end of the academic year, HPM fellows have the ability to present their scholarly activity to their co-fellows and HPM faculty/staff. 

Examples of recent scholarly activities include:
