The University of Iowa Palliative Care program seeks an MD or equivalent with excellent communication skills for the role of Program Director of our Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship. The University of Iowa Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship is currently approved for two fellows, and since the program began in July 2014 we have filled all fellow positions. The Program Director will work closely with area hospice agencies and our University of Iowa Pediatric Palliative Care program to offer robust, well-rounded learning experiences. Approval for expansion to three fellows is anticipated in the relatively near future as a new Palliative Care service is fully developed at the Iowa City Veterans Medical Center, located in close proximity to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.
The University of Iowa Palliative Care program is growing and innovating in step with the rapid healthcare changes occurring throughout Iowa and the Midwest. Energetic and collaborative Palliative Care colleagues bring multi-faceted expertise (family medicine, general internal medicine, psychiatry, vascular surgery, and cardiology) to patient care and to future planning within a 705 bed tertiary university hospital. In the last 2 years the Palliative Care program has expanded its reach both in the Emergency Department and in the surgical and medical intensive care units; broadened its outpatient presence; and established a dedicated 6-bed inpatient Palliative Care unit.
We offer an environment for Palliative Care physicians to grow professionally; experience the support and creativity of colleagues; help educate the next generation of physicians; establish a leadership role; and give personalized care to patients and their loved ones.
