Educational Opportunities For Health Care Professionals

Agrace believes that the hospice and palliative medicine clinicians of tomorrow learn best through hands-on training today. We are proud to be a leader in educating the health care industry about serious illness, death and dying and to provide high-quality educational experiences to students throughout the communities we serve.

We collaborate with local educational institutions to help students gain experience in end-of-life care. Experiences may be clinical or non-clinical and include specialties such as nursing, health information management, counseling, and dietetics. Agrace supports students who are interested in completing preceptorships, clinical rotations and structured internships.

Agrace participates with the University of Wisconsin Hospital and the Veterans Administration Hospital in a Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship Program. Our fellowship program provides fellows with experiential work in all care settings with a variety of hospice and palliative patients.

With four annual fellowship positions encompassing all aspects of hospice and palliative medicine: inpatient consultation, a dedicated inpatient palliative care unit, outpatient clinics, children’s hospital consultation service and inpatient and home based hospice, we offer an excellent opportunity for physicians to gain the experience necessary for board certification in hospice and palliative medicine.

Agrace is committed to improving palliative care and end-of-life care by building the skills that health care professionals use to deliver care.

Our clinical educators offer in-services for our health care partners on topics such as pain and symptom management, skin and wound care, palliative care consultations, conflict management, infection prevention and many other related topics(see our catalog of in-services below).

These programs often help our partners meet state/industry training requirements, and also improve collaboration between organizations who are simultaneously caring for the same patient. Most programs are 30 minutes in length and are provided without cost at your site (within our nine-county service area in southern Wisconsin).
