Hope Hospice Associate Medical Directors Kuljeet Multani, MD, and Jatinder Marwaha, MD, have received Hospice Medical Director Certification from the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (AAHPM). The certification requires a rigorous examination and extensive knowledge about hospice and palliative care.
“As an agency that holds quality care and outstanding service as top priorities, we believe that this certification demonstrates Drs. Multani’s and Marwaha’s commitment to our patients and their families and the type of care we provide to them,” says Maureen Dudgeon, MD, Hope Hospice Chief Medical Officer.
According to AAHPM, the certification promotes the safety and health of individuals requiring the services of hospice by providing a means of measuring knowledge through a standardized, comprehensive examination.
Community members and other health care providers benefit by being able to recognize hospice medical directors who have demonstrated competence in the knowledge and skills necessary to function as a hospice physician and medical director.
Dr. Multani is board certified in palliative care and family medicine. She is a palliative care physician with the Palo Alto Medical Foundation. Dr. Marwaha is board certified in internal medicine, hospice, palliative care and sleep medicine. He is currently a hospitalist at San Ramon Regional Medical Center.
