Dr. Hauser also directs the palliative care training program, Education in Palliative and End of Life Care (EPEC). At Northwestern, he is charged with overseeing one of four curriculum elements for medical student education, Professional Development, which includes medical humanities and bioethics, personal awareness and self-care and teamwork and leadership. Dr. Hauser’s own research and education work has been in teaching palliative care to many populations of health care professionals, diverse approaches in medical humanities, and teaching professionalism.
