Adult Palliative Care Service

The Adult Palliative Care Service’s faculty and staff are engaged in a number of research and educational initiatives throughout the Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC). By researching, developing, and training specialists in palliative care models and then educating health care providers in the principles and practice of palliative care, our goal is to implement and expand novel and innovative care programs locally and nationally.
