Check out the 2013 Calendar of Palliative Care Programs for Professionals developed by the Institute's educational team.
The California State University Institute for Palliative Care at Cal State San Marcos (CSUSM) is the first statewide educational and workforce development initiative focused on palliative care.
Founded in 2012 by the largest higher-education system in the U.S., the Institute is addressing the growing need for professionals who can help individuals and families managing serious and chronic illnesses achieve quality of life along with quality of care.
The Institute is leveraging the CSU’s renowned faculty expertise, its interdisciplinary curriculum, and its role as one of the largest producers of healthcare graduates in California to develop the palliative care workforce needed by 2020.
Envisioned to be a state-wide resource and nationally recognized model for serving the educational needs of today’s professionals, students and the public at large, the CSU Institute for Palliative Care will create a template for palliative care education and community engagement that can be adopted by other CSU campuses across the state and at institutions around the country.
