Yale Section of Geriatric Medicine

The mission of the Section of Geriatrics in the Department of Internal Medicine at Yale University School of Medicine is to improve the function, independence, and quality of life of older persons. The Section trains resident physicians, medical students, fellows, and attending physicians in the most effective care of the elderly, promotes innovative multidisciplinary research programs, trains junior investigators to become future leaders, and offers our patients the highest level of clinical care.

Fellowship Opportunity

The Section of Geriatric Medicine has openings available in its T32 Training Program in Geriatric Clinical Epidemiology and Aging Related Research sponsored by the National Institute of Aging. Over the past decade, we have had great success in helping to launch the academic careers of junior investigators inside and outside of geriatrics, including infectious diseases, rheumatology, cardiology, endocrinology, pulmonary and critical care, hematology, oncology, general medicine, nursing, public health, and pharmacology. Graduates of our training program are becoming leaders in aging research within their disciplines. Click here to read more about our program and how to apply.
