Home / Degree Programs / Hospice and Palliative Care, Certificate

The certificate program in hospice and palliative care is designed to provide future health and health care workers with the skills and competencies to lead and manage end-of-life care through a variety of settings, including home health care. Students learn from interprofessional instructors who are involved in hospice and palliative care as physicians, social workers, nurses and bereavement counselors, and who work with both children and adults as well as meet with hospice patients. Students get specialized instruction on dementia and Alzheimer's disease, as well as learn about how these contemporary health care issues are burdening our health care system under its current structure. Lastly, students finish their certificate by completing an internship at Hospice of the Valley where they will work with patients and their families to help provide non-clinical care needs.
