Ungerleider Palliative Care Education Program
Initiated in Fall 2014, the CPMC Resident Palliative Care Education Program was founded by a grant from Shoshana Ungerleider, M.D. and her father Steven Ungerleider, PhD, in collaboration with CPMC's Office of Graduate and Undergraduate Internal Medicine Education, Department of Internal Medicine Palliative Care Division, Departments of Psychiatry & Health Psychology and CPMC Foundation. The program is under the leadership of program director, Monica Rosenthal, M.D.
Caring for patients at the end of life and helping to guide them toward appropriate care requires core knowledge of palliative practices, the communications skills to deal with challenging situations, and the space for residents to process their own emotions around death and dying. This innovative, comprehensive program addresses all three of these needs.

- CPMC's Palliative Care professionals can help you find relief from the symptoms, pain and stress of your illness so that you can live each day fully.
When doctors are better trained to have difficult conversations around suffering and end-of-live issues, we focus care on quality of life, instead of just length of life. — Shoshana Ungerleider, M.D.
Coming Home Hospice
Give to Coming Home Hospice — You can help bring loving, end-of-life care to CPMC's Coming Home Hospice patients in San Francisco — many of whom are unable to pay for the assistance they need. With help from our philanthropic partners like you, Coming Home Hospice in San Francisco can continue to offer compassionate, personal care to those in need and their families, regardless of their ability to pay.
Your gift closes a significant portion of that gap so that Coming Home can continue to offer compassionate, hands-on care to those in need and their families.
Program in Medicine and Human Values (PMHV)
Program in Medicine and Human Values (PMHV) — Your philanthropic investment in CPMC's Program in Medicine and Human Values will help provide clinical ethics consultations for patients, their families and caregivers while they deal with difficult decisions. The conversation is brought directly to the bedside whenever possible and when patients are unable to speak for themselves, PMHV ethics consultants help guide loved ones toward a decision they believe the patient would make themselves if they could.
