Mayo Clinic's campus in Phoenix, Arizona, offers a one-year Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship that provides training in the care of patients facing advanced and life-limiting diseases. The fellowship is a collaborative program with Hospice of the Valley, the largest not-for-profit hospice organization in the country. Hospice of the Valley provides opportunities to care for patients in their homes as well as within palliative care units such as Sherman Home, which is located on the Mayo Clinic campus.
