Eligibility Requirements

It is with regret that our program has made the difficult decision to withdraw from the Match for the July 2023-2024 fellowship year and take a 1 year pause from training students and fellows.

The Providence Alaska Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship remains committed to the goal of training and recruiting HPM caregivers to serve those seriously ill in our Alaskan communities, and we hope that any applicants that are interested our HPM fellowship for the July 2024-2025 academic year will apply when ERAS opens for next years applicants.

Please feel free to contact Anna Lukas, HPM Fellowship Program Coordinator (anna.lukas@providence.org) with any questions.
