Colorado University launches first master's program in interdisciplinary palliative care

"The strong current and future demand for palliative care specialists inspired the Colorado University Anschutz Medical Campus to offer the nation’s first master’s degree in interdisciplinary palliative care.

“We don’t train enough people in palliative medicine and palliative care,” said Amos Bailey, MD, who spearheaded the new program to be housed in the CU Denver | Anschutz Graduate School. “Nationally, we need an additional 5,000 full-time providers.”

Bailey said that number could actually require up to 18,000 trained healthcare professionals, depending on the proportion of time they can devote to hospice and palliative medicine practice."
