Fellowship in Geriatrics

The ACGME-accredited one-year Geriatric Medicine 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. There are six fellowship positions available each year.
 
Curriculum
The NYU Langone Geriatric Medicine Fellowship includes clinical rotations in outpatient and inpatient geriatric care, as well as nursing home care, 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.

Requirements
Successful candidates will have completed three years of residency training as part of an accredited Internal Medicine or Family Medicine program in the US.
