Fellowship in Geriatrics

ACGME-accredited Geriatrics Fellowship prepares internists and family physicians to care for the frail elderly in diverse settings, and to develop the skills necessary for successful careers as clinician-educators or investigators. To date, the majority of graduated fellows are associated with academic medical centers.

The Geriatrics Fellowship program is accredited for one year of clinical training, with an optional second year for fellows pursuing research interests (the norm among Geriatrics fellowship programs in the US).

There are six fellowship positions available for the first year and two positions available for the optional second year. Recruitment and interviews for first year positions begin each year in September. As of November 2013, NYU Langone Geriatrics Fellowship program is participating in the National NRMP Match process.

The NYU Langone Geriatrics Fellowship includes clinical rotations in outpatient and inpatient geriatric care, as well as nursing home, geriatric psychiatry, home-based care and palliative care. Fellows attend a weekly Geriatrics Clinical Conference, Medicine Grand Rounds, Geriatrics Journal Club, and an array of conferences specific to the site of their clinical rotations.

A comprehensive curriculum covers clinical geriatrics, research methodology and statistics, aging in society, nursing home regulations, and ethics. Fellows are active in the teaching of medical students, residents, nursing students, and social work students. All fellows undertake a research project and/or quality improvement project during the year and present their work at a national, regional, or local professional meeting.

Successful candidates will have completed three years of residency training with an accredited Internal Medicine or Family Medicine program in the US and must be licensed. We accept both J1 and HB1 visas; however the NYU School of Medicine does not allow observerships.
