The CSU Shiley Institute for Palliative Care at CSUSM promotes community awareness of palliative care and supports professional education of future palliative care providers.
Founded in 2014 and sustained by the Office of the President at CSUSM, we sponsor programs and events to educate our campus and neighboring communities about the goals and benefits of palliative care. We support faculty and students in teaching and learning about palliative care as offered in medicine, nursing, social work, and chaplaincy.
We partner with local palliative care providers to develop and enhance our programs, and we offer professional conferences and networking opportunities for our local provider community. We work to ensure that those who need palliative care know what it is and how to find it in our local region, and we support palliative care providers in their education, training, and practice.
As the CSU San Marcos campus partner institute of the state-wide CSU Shiley Institute for Palliative Care, we are proudly determined to make a difference in our local region.
