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, especially during an era of COVID-19. The 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 opportunities to practice conversation skills, facilitated conversations, and virtual site visits.
Who Should Apply
Current or recent graduate students in health-related disciplines, including but not limited to: Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech Pathology, Social Work, Rehabilitation, Ethics, Counseling, Health Policy, Public Health, Law, Administration, Business, Pastoral Care, and Psychology.
Applications for the 2022 Death & Dying Fellowship will open in November 2021.
