  3. It looks like you are way behind in your readings. Palliative care in management of chronic illnesses is a rapidly growing field. 8 medical centers in India are starting a fellowship to train physicians in collaboration with 5 different hospitals in the USA. I work in one of these centers. This is forward thinking and very innovative on part of the Armed Forces. Hats off to the Indian Govt for thinking forward!!
