Apply to become a Fellow of the Academy. If you are a physician who is active in the Academy and board certified in HPM, you can apply to achieve the FAAHPM distinction, one of the highest honors the Academy bestows on its physician members. The due date has been extended to September 18.


All the research scheduled for presentation at the 2020 State of the Science in Hospice and Palliative Care is now available on-demand in recorded video presentations with the esteemed faculty and in a poster gallery with abstracts. Purchase the Experience Package and receive an invitation to an exclusive discussion and virtual networking event on September 30.


Congratulations to the University of North Carolina HPM Fellowship Program for receiving the Ho/Chiang Foundation Fellowship Grant Award. The grant will support an adult HPM fellowship trainee participating in a pediatric track for the 2021-2022 academic year.


AAHPM recently learned that educational programs that include clinical images in PowerPoint or PDF formats, some of which have been aggregated by specialty societies, include patient specific information embedded within the images thought to have been anonymized. We encourage you to follow these best practices to ensure complete anonymization of any images used in your presentations.


The timeline for a longitudinal pathway for the Hospice and Palliative Medicine Continuing Certification Exam remains on track for 2022.  Learn more about the Longitudinal Assessment. Read the ABIM Blog and find out how to provide feedback as the pathway is being developed.
