VITAS Advantage: Hospice Thought Leader Partnership for Physicians
Here’s How VITAS Helps
When your patient is ready for comfort-focused, end-of-life care, you want to partner with a provider that puts their needs first. With the right provider, your practice and community can benefit, too.
The ideal partner is a healthcare thought leader that elevates your patients, practice, and the community at large, supporting current and future clinical professionals through education to ensure a higher quality of care for patients now and in generations to come. When it’s time to partner with hospice, choose VITAS, the provider that sets the standard.
- VITAS invests in the training of our next generation of hospice professionals, including physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, and music therapists.
- We sponsor fellowships and graduate education for physicians pursuing certification in hospice and palliative medicine, as well as continuing education for practicing physicians via CMEs, grand rounds, and mentorships.
- As a care model funded largely through Medicare and Medicaid, we support the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ triple aim and alternative payment models.
Clinical Expertise and Support
The board-certified medical directors who oversee VITAS interdisciplinary teams can also support your practice by helping physicians meet graduate medical education requirements. Our medical directors are available as lecturers and can oversee training at hospitals and VITAS inpatient hospice units.
Investing in the Future of End-of-Life Care
VITAS sponsors hospice and palliative medicine fellowships at eight institutions of higher education, demonstrating our commitment to current and future clinicians–and patients–within our specialty.
