COVID-19 update

The American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine, Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine, Association of American Medical Colleges and the National Resident Match Program all recommend virtual interviewing for the coming recruitment season, due to the ongoing pandemic. Geisinger’s Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship program will follow those recommendations and conduct all fellowship interviews virtually, both for external and internal applicants. We’re working to develop resources, tools and best practices to make sure your virtual interview is as thorough and fair as an in-person interview.
