Position description
Mayo Clinic in Arizona seeks a Palliative Medicine physician. Newly incorporated as The Mayo Enterprise Center for Palliative Medicine, The Center for Palliative Medicine – Arizona consists of a core group of 4 full time palliative medicine physicians from multiple backgrounds plus a supplemental physician who works 50% time. The Center believes strongly in a team-based, interdisciplinary approach to care and this is reflected in our large team of 4 advanced practice clinicians, 2 RNs, an inpatient and an outpatient social worker, and a chaplain, who are full time members of our interdisciplinary team.

Providers have the opportunity to practice in several venues on the Mayo Clinic campus. Mayo has an active hospital palliative care consult service, vibrant outpatient clinics and a 12-bed inpatient hospice unit co-managed with our community partner, Hospice of the Valley. Hospice of the Valley is the largest, not-for-profit hospice organization in the country. Through this collaboration, faculty and trainees have the opportunity to care for patients throughout their journey, including at end-of-life. New faculty can also look forward to the development of a hospital-based, inpatient palliative care unit and an outpatient supportive care unit.

The Palliative Medicine Program supports an ACGME-accredited fellowship in Hospice and Palliative Medicine that attracts outstanding candidates from all over the country. Additionally, we will be welcoming our inaugural NP/PA fellow in Palliative Medicine in 2019. Colleagues are actively involved in teaching residents and fellows as well as the pursuit of clinical research projects. This growing academic practice provides the support for new faculty to develop their own unique academic and educational pursuits. This is paired with generous support for CME and dedicated programming for clinician’s sustainability throughout their career. Mayo Clinic excels in teamwork and interdisciplinary care. Our providers have unparalleled access to subspecialty care and an extensive resource of diagnostic and therapeutic modalities.
