Also see General Admissions requirements.

How to apply

The academic year begins in July. 

The application and all supporting documentation must be submitted by Aug. 31 of the year preceding the program start date.

You must apply through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) for fellowship applicants.

  1. Visit the ERAS for fellowship applicants website. All applications to Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education programs must include these application materials. The dean's letter can be uploaded in ERAS as the Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE) and does not need to be sent directly to the program coordinator. In addition, this fellowship requires that you submit a letter from your residency program director, which can be uploaded in ERAS as the fourth letter of recommendation.
  2. Appointments are made through the Hospice and Palliative Medicine Match, included under the Medical Specialties Match, which is sponsored by the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). You must register for the match in addition to applying through ERAS.
  3. Applicants considered for an appointment will be invited to visit Mayo Clinic for a personal interview with the program director and selected faculty. Interviews are conducted between September and November each year.
