Integrated Geriatrics & Palliative Medicine Fellowship
NYU Langone’s Division of Geriatric Medicine and Palliative Care is proud to offer a two-year Integrated Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine Fellowship through the American Board of Internal Medicine Competency-Based Medical Education pilot program.
The integrated fellowship meets the core competency requirements of both specialties in a total of 17 months and allows for 7 months of scholarly activity and professional development in research, education, or administration. This protected time for scholarly activity is crucial for preparing fellows to take on leadership positions in the fields of geriatrics and palliative care.
Graduates of the integrated fellowship are board-eligible in hospice and palliative medicine and geriatric medicine.
The fellowship includes rotations in inpatient and outpatient geriatric medicine, inpatient and outpatient palliative care, long-term care, nursing home care, hospice, home care, addiction, interventional pain management, and pediatric palliative care.
Clinical training occurs at the following sites:
- NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue
- Tisch Hospital and Kimmel Pavilion
- VA NY Harbor Healthcare System
- NYC Health + Hospitals/Gouverneur
- Visiting Nurse Service of New York Hospice and Palliative Care
- Perlmutter Cancer Center
- NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn
The integrated fellowship allows for seven months of protected time during its two years to pursue a scholarly project in the area of research, education, or administration. Fellows are paired with a mentor in their area of interest to assist in selecting a project at the beginning of the fellowship. Protected time for scholarly activity is structured to result in publication and presentation at the end of the second year. Funds for travel to national academic conferences are available.
Incoming fellows are required to complete three years of internal medicine or family medicine residency training at an accredited program within the United States before the start of their fellowship. NYU Langone does not offer H-1B sponsorship for house staff, residents, or fellows. J-1 sponsorship is available through the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates® (ECFMG®). A New York State medical license must be obtained before beginning the fellowship.
We accept one fellow into the Integrated Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine Fellowship each year. Applications are accepted through Electronic Residency Application Service® (ERAS®). The ERAS® application season begins in early June, and fellowship candidates can submit applications to the program in early July. We begin reviewing applications on July 15 and invite promising applicants to interview on a rolling basis.
As a candidate on your interview day, you can expect to tour our facilities; meet our program director, program faculty, and current trainees; and share your background, skills, motivation to pursue fellowship, and future goals with us through a series of interviews.
Eligible candidates are selected based on their preparedness, ability, aptitude, academic credentials, communication skills, and personal qualities such as motivation and integrity. We do not discriminate on the basis of age, race, religion, ethnicity, national origin, disability, veteran status, sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
All of the fellowships in the Division of Geriatric Medicine and Palliative Care participate in the Medical Specialties Matching Program through the National Resident Matching Program®. Rank lists are finalized in late October or early November of each year.
We hope that you will be part of our next fellowship class!
