Since its inception in 1988, the UNC Geriatric Fellowship Program has attracted a diverse range of physicians interested in the complex medical issues related to an aging population. Several of the program’s previous fellows have joined medical departments dealing with aging and aging research here at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Hear about the Program from a few of our graduates…

Dr. Lauren Hartman, UNC Geriatric Medicine Fellow 2019-2020
UNC’s program embodies a comprehensive, multidisciplinary team-based approach to geriatrics. Working so closely with the many disciplines that strive to keep our elders healthy has made me a better physician. I’m interested in outpatient geriatrics and the nursing home environment, quality improvement, and medical education and will pursue these interests as faculty at Wake Forest Medical Center. My fellowship year set me up for success in all of these areas!

–Dr. Lauren Hartman, Wake Forest Medical Center

What sets UNC Geriatrics apart is the breadth of clinical experiences and the wonderful faculty. The best part about the program is the exceptional faculty whose love for teaching is consistently evident.

My experience in this program exceeded my expectations. I think that UNC Geriatrics does a wonderful job at preparing fellows for careers in academics and they strive to make all of us better educators and leaders.

–Dr. Casey Rust, Florida State University College of Medicine, Department of Geriatrics

Dr. Casey Rust UNC Geriatrics Fellow 2019-2020
Juneve Toche, MD
I liked the work-life balance that I saw at UNC. It’s very family oriented. If there was one word to describe the atmosphere, it’s ‘warm.’ During my time as a Fellow, I felt like Faculty had a desire to invest in me. That’s the best scenario: seeing leaders investing in learners.
