Application Process

The Yale Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship currently has two fellows per year. Applications are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).

Program Requirements

Applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Have completed an ACGME accredited residency program.
  • Applicants from residency programs other than Internal Medicine and Family Medicine need to have a strong background with internal medicine training and skills. We aim to match the strengths of our program to fellow applicants to provide an optimal training program for each Yale fellow. In this light, fellow candidate ranking and selection will be at the discretion of the fellowship director.


The field of Hospice and Palliative Medicine will enter The Match for the first time for the 2016-17 fellowship year. The Yale program will participate in the Match and begin to download and review applications from ERAS for that application cycle starting July 15, 2015. Interviews will be scheduled on set dates August-October 2015. Match results are scheduled to be released in December 2015.
