GPEC is a new track offered to HPM fellows at UCSF, Harvard, and Tulane. The core curriculum consists of the following elements:

  • A one-month clinical elective in either Uganda or Kerala (Southern India), precepted by palliative care practitioners working locally
  • Mentorship in global palliative care at your home fellowship institution throughout your palliative care fellowship provided by experienced global health faculty
  • A series of regular virtual meetings throughout the fellowship year for track participants and their mentors across all three sites. These meetings focus on didactic topics in global palliative care as well as pre-briefing and debriefing.

In addition, you will have access to:

  • A database of global health resources available across all three home institutions
  • A global health community at your home institution
  • A growing network of global palliative care providers

Selection for the track is determined by each participating institution. Global health experience or work with underserved populations is encouraged but not required. All applicants will be appropriately trained to be proficient in basic global health skills during their clinical rotation. For more information about GPEC and other global palliative care opportunities, please talk with a GPEC curriculum director at any of the participating institutions.
