Interviews are scheduled on a day mutually agreeable to the fellowship and the applicant. On your interview day, we try to provide a comprehensive yet relaxed experience. We encourage you to bring your spouse or significant other.

The schedule includes interactions with faculty and hospice and palliative medicine colleagues. You will have opportunities to address special interests or needs you may have. You also have the opportunity to explore the hospital, hospice inpatient unit, skilled nursing unit, and also our community.  Interviewees and their families will receive one night's stay at a selected hotel.
