Geriatric Fellowship

Message from the Program Director

Geriatric care is a passion of mine and it is such an amazing honor to pass on my joy of treating this amazing population with budding geriatricians. During the fellowship, fellows will gain specialized medical training to become experts in the comprehensive care of older adults. The curriculum is formulated to allow for growth in diagnosing and treating conditions prevalent in older adults, such as dementia, osteoporosis, arthritis, and cardiovascular diseases, while focusing on maintaining patients’ independence and quality of life. Our fellowship combines rotations with specialties as well as continuity experiences in multiple settings, including clinic, home visits, Assisted Living Facilities and Skilled Nursing Facilities. I believe our program is unique in that we are able to work with each fellow to try to tailor rotations towards their goals in medicine. Leadership and scholarly activities are also tailored to each Fellow’s passion. All of the experiences and didactic education, along with resources and support, set our fellows up for successful passage of the board examination in geriatric medicine.
