Geriatric Medicine

Program Overview

The John Peter Smith Hospital Geriatric Fellowship has a long history of preparing leaders for the future of Geriatric Medicine. Graduates work in a wide variety of settings serving in academic and clinical roles.

 The fellowship is a one year interdisciplinary program which uniquely prepares graduates for practice by providing flexibility in training with individualized elective curriculum.   Applications are taken from physicians who have completed either a Family Medicine or Internal Medicine Residency

The fellows train under current national leaders in geriatric medicine in a variety of locations enabling the fellow to care for the full spectrum of geriatric patients. Fellows provide care to an ethnically, culturally and socioeconomically diverse population of elders. Opportunities to provide team-based interdisciplinary care in coordination with Family Medicine Residents, mid-level practitioners and medical students abound.
