Thank you for your interest in our Geriatric Medicine Clinical Fellowship. This one-year training opportunity offers a wide variety of clinical experiences and sufficient elective time for fellows to tailor additional learning opportunities for their future career plans.
We currently accept up to four clinical fellows per year with time shared between the University of Colorado Hospital (UCH) and the VA Medical Center (VA). Fellow continuity experiences occur in a variety of settings including home-based primary care (VA), specialty primary care (VA and UCH) and long-term care at the State Veterans Home located on campus. Additional training includes palliative care, neuropsychiatric medicine, Acute Care of the Elderly and community nursing facility-medical directorship.
Fellows spend up to four months per year on the Geriatric Evaluation and Management service in the sub-acute rehab setting and educate three to four internal medicine residents and medical students each month. There are a large variety of elective opportunities available and customized experiences can also be created.
Our faculty serve as direct mentors for career and scholarship projects, and we are proud to have representation each year at the annual conferences for The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine and American Geriatrics Society by our faculty and trainees.
Please explore our website for detailed information on our clinical and research programs, faculty bios and additional educational experiences and contact me directly with any fellowship specific questions as they arise.
