User Review( votes)
At the end of twelve months of sub-speciality training the geriatric medicine, fellows are eligible for subspecialty board certification in geriatric medicine. They are fully prepared to provide primary and consultative health care to geriatric patients in the hospital, nursing home, and office settings.
The fellows’ training includes a multi-dimensional biopsychosocial view of assessment, treatment, and management of health problems in older adults. Fellows will gain skills through a combination of supervised clinical experiences and formal didactic conferences. In addition to the requisite body of knowledge, each fellow develops leadership and teaching skills, professional attitudes, and practical experiences required of a geriatrician. Additional years of research-based training are available to qualified fellows.
