- Medical College of Wisconsin

The "Medical School Palliative Care Education Project" Program is designed to help US medical schools develop both required and elective palliative care educational experiences along with faculty development.

Selected medical schools include: Louisville, Baylor, Emory, Northwestern, Oregon and Northeast Ohio, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, UMDNJ School of Osteopathic Medicine, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine.
