Fellowships Program

Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience, in association with the Cincinnati Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, offer two one-year Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-accredited positions in our Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship Training Program.

The Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship prepares the candidate for Added Qualifications in Geriatric Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.

Geriatric Psychiatry Fellows train in the nationally recognized Cincinnati VA Medical Center, the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, and the Alois Alzheimer Center.

As part of training, Fellows have the chance to intermingle with Geriatric Medicine Fellows and Categorical Psychiatry Residents, which provides them with an opportunity to share their clinical and didactic experience. Geriatric Psychiatry Fellows also have the opportunity to supervise Categorical Psychiatry Residents and Medical Students during their clinical rotations.

Multidisciplinary team-based clinical learning is interwoven with Geriatric Psychiatry Seminars, Clinical Case Conferences, and Journal Clubs. The Fellows attend weekly Grand Rounds, participate in live patient board-style examinations, and the development of a scholarly project. Competency-based learning is guided by clearly outlined goals and objectives.

Highly competitive salary and benefits are available, including the opportunity to earn extra income. Graduates of the Fellowship are routinely pursued for clinical, administrative, and research roles.

The Tristate area offers a diverse culture, with superb shopping/dining/entertainment and affordable housing. We are within a one-hour drive of the National USAF and Space Museum. Within Cincinnati itself you will find the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, the Contemporary Arts Center, the nationally ranked Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, and a variety of other museums and cultural attractions.

We enjoy a rich sports culture, including the National Football League’s Cincinnati Bengals and Major League Baseball's Cincinnati Reds. Cincinnati also hosts world-class professional tennis, a NASCAR Sprint Cup race, professional ice hockey, NCAA Division I sports at The University of Cincinnati and nearby Xavier University, and the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon.

Our families are supported by the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, which ranks third in the nation among all honor roll hospitals in U.S. News & World Report's 2015 Best Children's Hospitals. Cincinnati has one of the best selections of public schools in the nation. All of this is within hours of the Great Lakes and the Appalachian Mountains for weekend getaways.
