The 2013 Hastings Center Cunniff-Dixon Physician Awards in the early-career physician category honor Drew Rosielle MD, a palliative care physician and program director of the Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship at the University of Minnesota Medical Center in Minneapolis.
Dr. Rosielle is recognized for his expertise in and commitment to evidence-based palliative and end-of-life care and education. He is the editor of Fast Facts and Concepts, which provides concise, peer-reviewed, and evidence-based summaries on topics in palliative care for clinicians and trainees. He also founded Pallimed, an award-winning and internationally recognized blog on hospice and palliative care. He serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Palliative Medicine and is a member of the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine’s clinical education committee. Dr. Rosielle “focuses on a core element of palliative care – the patient, family, and friends as the unit of care,” said his nominator, Lyn Ceronsky, DNP, GNP, Director of Palliative Care at the University of Minnesota Medical Center and Fairview Southdale Hospital. “He exudes a solid and supportive presence for families.”

Dr. Rosielle received his medical degree from the University of Minnesota Medical School in 2002.
