The Center for Aging and Health’s Interprofessional Geriatrics Fellowship trains practicing professionals in core principles and best practices of older adult health. Basically, the one-year Fellowship program seeks to provide more older North Carolinians — including those in underserved or rural areas — with high-quality care informed by best practices and recent research in geriatric medicine.

  • During each cycle we select three to four IPE fellows from medicine, pharmacy, nursing, or dentistry through a competitive process.
  • Specifically, the cohort learns about, with, and from each other as they immerse themselves in a practice-based geriatrics project.
  • Also, the Fellowship creates a unique opportunity to build team care across the continuum of services.
  • What’s more, the team delivers person-centered, high quality geriatrics in real world settings.

Funded through our Carolina Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program, the IP Fellowship has trained four cohorts since 2016. Although a third class was slated to begin in 2021, we suspended the fellowship program due to COVID-19 concerns. Details on the next fellowship year are forthcoming.
