Geriatric Medicine Fellowship Program
The Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine Geriatric Medicine Fellowship established in 2008 is structured to train physicians to be leaders in caring for the elderly.
The fellowship curriculum includes one-month rotations in Hospice and Palliative Care, Long Term Care, Rehabilitation, Geriatric Psychiatry, Neurology, Women's Health and Medical Direction. Longitudinal experience in geriatric assessment, continuity home care and continuity nursing home care are also structured into the curriculum. There also is opportunity for scholarly activity.
Two fellows are accepted annually and are expected to start in July; however, accommodations for off-cycle trainees will be considered. Applications for the fellowship are due by April 1 to be considered for a July start date. Please contact us by phone or e-mail to get directions for submitting your application.
To educate culturally diverse students, residents, and fellows who become excellent physicians and who incorporate the principles of geriatric medicine into their practices by focusing on generalist training that is integrated, supported, and strengthened by specialists and researchers, all of whom value patient-focused care, community service, and research, and have passion for improving health in their communities.
