David Wu, assistant professor in the Division of General Internal Medicine, was selected to be a part of the sixth cohort of the Cambia Health Foundation Sojourns® Scholar Leadership Program. He is one of ten emerging palliative care leaders chosen through a rigorous selection process from a highly competitive pool that included candidates from across the country, including all disciplines and practice settings.
The Sojourns Scholar Leadership Program is designed to identify, cultivate and advance the next generation of palliative care leaders. As part of the leadership program, each Sojourns Scholar receives $180,000 in funding ($90,000/year over a two-year period) to conduct an innovative and impactful clinical, policy, educational or systems change project in the field of palliative care. Scholars also receive individual mentorship to design and implement a development plan that supports their growth as national palliative care leaders.
David's innovative project is entitled, "Integrating a Narrative Approach to Goals of Care (GOC) Conversations in the Intensive Care Unit."
