About AAHPM

AAHPM logo

The American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (AAHPM) is a medical special society of doctors, nurses, and other health professionals who care for seriously ill patients and their families. The Academy’s goal is to promote excellence in the profession through education, research, advocacy, and other support for our members, and to expand patient access to hospice and palliative programs and the valuable services they provide.

We created PalliativeDoctors.org to reach out directly to patients and their families who might benefit from the specialized medical care our members provide.
