San Diego Medical Community Receives First-Ever Accredited Palliative Medicine Fellowship Program
Date:2/6/2009

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The Institute for Palliative Medicine's Fellowship Program received full accreditation from the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) -- the first accredited fellowship program in palliative medicine in San Diego. Located on the campus of San Diego Hospice, The Institute for Palliative Medicine has trained fellows since 2000 and its Fellowship Program in Palliative Medicine is known as one of the most clinically demanding programs in the country.

Charles von Gunten, MD, PhD, FACP, FAAHPM, is Provost of The Institute for Palliative Medicine and notes the accreditation acknowledges the advances in palliative medicine. "Our abilities to prevent and relieve suffering have never been more powerful in the history of medicine," said Dr. von Gunten. "Subspecialty consultation is one of the ways to make that knowledge practically available."

In collaboration with Scripps Mercy Graduate Medical Education, The Institute for Palliative Medicine's Fellowship Program is designed to prepare physicians to become subspecialists in palliative medicine and serve as expert consultants in hospitals and hospices throughout the country. Physicians from any of the 10 co-sponsoring specialties (Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Pediatrics, OB/GYN, Surgery, Psychiatry and Neurology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Radiation Oncology, and Anesthesiology) are eligible. The program includes rotations through a variety of patient care settings including San Diego Hospice's Inpatient Care Center, Scripps Mercy and UCSD hospitals, and home hospice visits.

David Shaw, MD, MBA, FACP, FACC, is the Director of Medical Education for Scripps Mercy and supports the advances in palliative medicine through the newly accredited program at The Institute for Palliative Medicine.
