Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Emory University School of Medicine and the Emory Palliative Care Center are offering a fellowship training program in pediatric hospice and palliative medicine.

Fellows work with our Pediatric Advanced Care Team (PACT) at Children’s, which begins their work when a provider diagnoses a child with a serious illness. Because every child and family is different, we treat each child as an individual, tailoring our services to meet the specific needs of each child and family.

We continue to work with a child, family and care team throughout the patient’s illness and treatment.

Our team collaborates with other healthcare professionals at Children’s, including medical teams, child life and chaplaincy to provide holistic, interdisciplinary care.

If interested, contact Emilee Flynn, MD, MPH, a Palliative Care Physician at Children’s, with the following information:

  1. Application through ERAS
