About the Program
Fellowship training prepares family physicians to comprehensively and holistically identify and manage the physical, psychological, and social health concerns of a specific population.
The Department of Family and Community Medicine, in conjunction with the Office of Geriatric Medicine, administers a fellowship in geriatrics.
The goal of the fellowship program is to prepare internists and family physicians for clinical, administrative and/or academic careers in geriatric medicine. Given the complex nature of the field, we believe it is not possible to create one curriculum that would satisfy the needs of every fellow.
Within the framework of the Residency Review Committee guidelines, individual curriculum development is facilitated. At this time, we are accepting applicants for a one-year clinical program that leads to eligibility for ABFP/ABIM certification, with an option to continue for a second year of academic training.
The University of Cincinnati fellowship program utilizes the clinical and academic resources of Greater Cincinnati. Fellows also have the opportunity to train at Maple Knoll Village, one of the nation’s finest continuing care retirement communities.
The Residency Review Committee (RRC) for family practice accredits the Geriatric Medicine Fellowship Program at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
Successful completion of the fellowship program leads to eligibility to sit for the geriatric medicine added qualifications examination of the American Board of Family Practice and the American Board of Internal Medicine.
