Palliative Medicine Access Fund
AAHPM’s Palliative Medicine Access Fund provides scholarships to cover registration fees (excluding preconference workshops) and $500 toward travel-related expenses (airfare, hotel, cab fare, and meals) for the Annual Assembly.
You’re eligible for a Palliative Medicine Access Fund scholarship if you are an AAHPM member, an US-based physician, fellow, or resident currently practicing hospice and palliative medicine. AAHPM gives preference to applicants who
- have not previously attended the Annual Assembly
- demonstrate a commitment to the field of hospice and palliative care
- demonstrate the need for scholarship funds to facilitate their attendance
- have been selected to present an abstract, paper or poster
- are a member of an AAHPM committee or task force, or are a community chair.
Applications are now open and are due by November 20, 2017.
The following individuals were awarded the Palliative Medicine Access Fund for 2017. Congratulations!
