This half-course is the core masters level course in the second option of study in palliative and supportive care.

Each seminar will consist of a presentation by a faculty member, followed by a discussion. The seminars will take place for a full session on a bi-weekly basis and will be complemented by weekly seminar reading assignments, 3 short essays, and a 10-page essay at session’s end exploring one of the seminar topics in further detail.
