A one year clinical fellowship is offered at the Department of Supportive Care. Affiliated with the University of Toronto, the Department of Supportive Care at Princess Margaret provides fellows with an outstanding clinical experience.
The department offers fellows in palliative care a wide range of supervisors and positions within its clinical programs, making the Department of Supportive Care a major contributor to the success of these fellowships.
Fellows will work in different palliative care practice settings such as community and tertiary palliative care units, inpatient palliative care consultation service, residential hospice, outpatient palliative care clinics and community-based home-visiting palliative care teams. Fellows will learn about palliative care for patients and families at diagnosis, during active treatment, in the event of acute medical issues, after completing treatment, and end-of-life. Fellows will have the opportunity to observe and perform palliative consultations with supervision to aid in developing diagnostic and formulation skills, and receive ongoing clinical supervision.
During the training, fellows will provide palliative care for a wide spectrum of patients with malignant and non-malignant illnesses and they can customize their training to have additional training in cancer palliative care or non-malignant palliative care.
Clinical fellows will complete a scholarly project during their training and will participate in an interdisciplinary academic environment with ample opportunity for feedback and presentation at local rounds, including the Pain and Symptom Management Rounds and Departmental Grand Rounds as well as leadership opportunities including junior attending roles and committee participation.
