I just wanted to congratulate HPMFellow who, as of 7/1/14, is no longer a fellow but now a full fledged hospice and palliative care attending. As I mentioned in the past, I had the honor and privilege of being her hospice and palliative care mentor for 6 weeks while she was still a medical student. It was amazing to see her growth in our field within the 6 week rotation and at that time she was sure hospice and palliative medicine was for her. She’s an amazing person and showed me that she could be a great physician. I’m very proud and again just want to congratulate her. She has 4 more journal entries that I will be publishing under HPMFellow, however, if she continues to contribute, maybe she’ll change it to HPMattending or something :-).
