One-Year Clinical Program

Fellows in the one-year clinical program spend 12 months in longitudinal and block clinical rotations. A ten-month series of clinical geriatric medicine conferences are required. In addition, fellows participate in a conference series to improve skills in the medical literature, clinical teaching and administrative skills.

Examples of block rotations include:

  • Community geriatrics
  • Inpatient and outpatient geriatric psychiatry
  • Geriatric rehabilitation
  • Neurology
  • Audiology/ENT
  • Ophthalmology
  • Inpatient medical consultations

Examples of longitudinal rotations include:

  • Primary care
  • Geriatric medicine outpatient assessment
  • Nursing home
  • Retirement home rounds

Two-Year Clinical/Academic Program

Fellows with an interest in further academic training may be invited during their first fellowship year, to apply for a second year of clinical/academic training. This time can consist of any possible combination of clinical, teaching, clinical research, basic research or administrative experiences.

The fellow, the selected research preceptor and the program director develop this portion of the program. In past years, some fellows have chosen to spend one or two months studying at another institution in the United States or abroad.
