On Wednesday, March 12, the Graduate School of Social Service held a virtual celebration for its graduating Palliative Care Fellows, to recognize and thank the many people who make the Palliative Care Fellowship possible and who contribute to its success.
Organized by GSS Professor Cathy Berkman, Ph.D., the virtual celebration was an emotional gathering for the group, with each Fellow showing their gratitude for the Fellowship and the community that came along with it. Incoming Fellows for the 21-22 academic year were also welcomed and honored.
The mission of the Palliative Care Fellowship is to educate and develop social workers skilled in delivering high-quality palliative and end-of-life care to individuals and families, with cultural humility and respect for patient self-determination, to contribute specialist palliative social workers to the workforce. Selection for the Fellowship is highly competitive, with each Fellow receiving a stipend for tuition remission, access to a mentor, and more.
