AAHPM Scholarships Support Physician Education and Development
AAHPM's commitment to ensuring all patients with serious or life-threatening conditions have access to medical professionals with the training, knowledge, and skills to provide high-quality palliative care begins with you.
To support this goal, AAHPM offers a number of scholarship opportunities to facilitate access to the best educational and career development resources for hospice and palliative medicine physicians at all levels, both from the United States and abroad. We hope these scholarship programs bring opportunities to learn, connect, and share expertise within reach for physicians and other hospice and palliative care professionals who might otherwise be unable to access them.
- Scholarships for Physicians in Developing Countries provide, with financial support, access to quality education for physicians who reside in developing countries by helping them attend the Annual Assembly.
- The Palliative Medicine Access Fund provides scholarships to US-based physicians to cover registration fees and offset travel expenses for the AAHPM & HPNA Annual Assembly.
- The Hospice and Palliative Medicine Lecture Scholarship is a new program, made possible by the Shaping the Future campaign, to support members who have been accepted to present on palliative care or hospice topics at other medical society meetings.
- The Research Scholars Program facilitates participation for US-based AAHPM members in the Annual Kathleen M. Foley Palliative Care Retreat and Research Symposium.
In addition to these opportunities, AAHPM supports career development with the Year-Long Mentoring Program focused on professional development in education, research, clinical care, and administration.
