2020 Death & Dying Fellowship applications open
Returning in January 2020, the Death & Dying Fellowship takes on a key challenge: the reality that professionals are not well prepared to deal with death, dying, and grieving families. Part of the Feinstein Fellowships created and organized by the Jewish Healthcare Foundation and Health Careers Futures, this Fellowship allows participants to learn, confront, and discuss the legal, medical, social, cultural, familial, and spiritual aspects of death and dying within a multi-disciplinary group in a low-pressure environment. The sessions will include site visits, facilitated conversations, and opportunities to practice conversation skills—a timely skill since Medicare approved payment for advanced care planning. During the final session, Fellows will create a community action plan.
