Scholarship for Physicians in Developing Countries: The Developing Countries Scholarship Fund was established to provide access to quality education for physicians who reside in developing countries to attend the AAHPM (American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine) and HPNA (Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association) annual conferences.

This scholarship program will provide financial support (up to $5,000) to physicians to learn the latest clinical information and research updates in hospice and palliative care from leading experts in the field.

This scholarship program is intended to facilitate Annual Assembly participation and cover ordinary costs associated with meeting registration, travel-related expenses (air fare, cab fare, meals), and lodging.

  • have not previously attended the Annual Assembly
