FARMINGTON – Dr. Larry Labul recently received subspecialty board certification in hospice and palliative medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Labul, an internal medicine physician who is employed as a hospitalist, started working at Franklin Memorial Hospital in 2005. Hospice and palliative medicine is a subspecialty designed to recognize excellence among physicians who are specialists in the care of seriously ill patients with a life-limiting illness. The field of hospice and palliative medicine is based on expanding scientific knowledge about symptom control when cure is not possible, and about appropriate care during the last months of life.

Labul completed his medical degree at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in Biddeford. In 2000, he completed a three-year internal medicine residency at United States Health Services Hospital in Johnson City, N.Y. He has been a board-certified diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine since 2001.
