Palliative Care Fellow Rural Rotation

The rural palliative medicine experience aligns with the mission of the University of New Mexico Palliative Care Fellowship to train palliative care physicians who can deliver culturally sensitive care across settings, including to patients in smaller communities in New Mexico. Furthermore, the team has collaborated with palliative care colleagues at Gallup Indian Medical Center to learn more about providing care to Native American / American Indian patients.

The fund will support stipends to Palliative Care Fellows for rural rotations at Gallup Indian Medical Center and other locations, if applicable. Funds would be granted to fellows to pay for temporary housing, meals and transportation expenses.
