Hello future palliative docs!

Only a couple months until the ERAS process starts. It's going to be a great cycle!

In line with convention, this thread is a good place to combine application and interview topics into one easy to access location for the 2019-2020 cycle.

I look forward to seeing your success on match day -- in about 230 days. But who's counting? :pompous:

Dear SDN,

After years of consuming SDN content, I figured it is time to produce some of my own. I am ABIM certified in Hospice & Palliative Medicine and not too far removed from fellowship. If you have questions, feel free to ask and I will try to best answer.

Question: Do you feel HPM programs have a notable bias against specialties other than IM/FM in the application process? And, if so, how would you recommend overcoming that bias as an applicant?

Program directors are looking for individuals who will succeed in their role, just like any employer. As such, if a potential trainee is switching from one field to a very different field, that will naturally raise eyebrows. You don't want to hire a flake. But if an individual has a good rationale behind the change, I do not think that will lead to bias. That is the purpose of a personal statement and interviews.
