Palliative Care

The palliative care intercession lasts for two weeks. Students rotate through various St. Mary's Hospital facilities in Athens and attend academic half days once a week. At the end of the rotation, students complete an exam. Students are also expected to submit a reflective essay and an essay describing a visit to a support group.
