Collaboration, academics, clinical care, teaching, leadership... Welcome to the UNC Geriatric Medicine Fellowship Program.
The Geriatric Fellowship Program at the University of North Carolina offers clinical and research training in the care of complicated older patients with an emphasis on evidence based care, a focus on academics, and a foundation in education.
We offer a training program that can be tailored to the individual career needs of each Fellow. Our fellows go on to become clinical geriatricians, medical directors, academic faculty, researchers, and double boarded sub-specialists! Several of our recent fellows have joined our program through the ABIM Research Pathway for training.
2013 has been a new year of collaboration --our third Geriatric Oncology Fellow and our second Geriatric-Emergency Medicine Fellow will both be joined us, and our first ABIM approved joint Geriatric Nephrology Fellow is in her final year of training.
Our faculty are viewed by the students and residents as some of the best and most active teachers at the School of Medicine. We feel that the educational needs of each fellow should take priority in our training program.
Please contact us if you have questions or would like to learn more about our program.
