Fellowship Programs

There are three tracks available to the physician interested in furthering their career in geriatric Medicine. All three tracks must include one year of clinical geriatric medicine. If you have completed a year of a fellowship in geriatric medicine at your current institution, but are not privy to expanded training, you may apply to either our geriatric educator track or the geriatric research track (research track is only available to US Citizens or Permanent Residents - See Research Fellowship).

Please find a short description of each Fellowship Track below:

Geriatric Medicine

This Section of our Website outlines the Fellowship in Geriatric Medicine. Under the Directorship of Dr. Gerard Kerins, this program is open to qualified M.D./D.O. candidates who have finished a internship and residency in an U.S. ACGME accredited program in Internal Medicine who have completed rotations in geriatrics.  Each fellow will gain formal training in teaching, will be the primary educator for medical students, internal medicine residents, and specialists, e.g., residents and faculty in surgery and gynecology. Fellows will learn how to use a variety of resources, including web-based teaching materials, virtual patients, small-group workshops for medical students, resident curriculum design, and program evaluation.

Geriatric Clinician Educator

Each fellow will gain formal training in teaching, will be the primary educator for medical students, internal medicine residents, and specialists, e.g., residents and faculty in surgery and gynecology. Fellows will learn how to use a variety of resources, including web-based teaching materials, virtual patients, small-group workshops for medical students, resident curriculum design, and program evaluation.

We accept J-1 Visas for both the one year Clinical and two year Clinical Educator Track.

Geriatric Clinical Epidemiology and Aging-Related Research (T32)

The second Post-doctoral Program is the T32 Training Program in Geriatric Clinical Epidemiology and Aging-Related Research. Under the Directorship of Dr. Thomas Gill, this is an NIA-funded training program open to MD and PhD candidates who are interested in pursuing an academic career in aging-related research. Potential candidates include geriatricians; general internists; fellows from all medical subspecialties, neurology, and psychiatry; and PhD graduates from other disciplines.  Due to its NIA funding, qualified applicants must be US Citizens or Permanent Residents
