The University of Colorado Geriatric Medicine Fellowship is a 12-month clinical fellowship combining core continuity experiences and block rotations with didactics, conferences, and scholarly projects to provide a comprehensive educational experience in care of older adults. This fellowship provides in-depth training in geriatric medicine across a spectrum of care settings, preparing fellows for a variety of career paths including geriatric primary care in both urban and rural settings, medical directorship and long-term care, academic medicine in clinical, education, and investigation pathways, post-acute care, and PACE. Fellows split time equally between two major hospital systems, UCHealth and the Rocky Mountain Regional VA Hospital, with additional rotations outside these locations that provide critical experiences. Through their work in these two major hospital systems along with various community-based settings, fellows care for a culturally, ethnically, and socioeconomically diverse patient population while learning to optimize care within a variety of health systems.

We currently accept up to four clinical fellows per year. The CU Geriatric Medicine Fellowship accepts MD and DO physicians who have completed an ACGME-accredited residency in internal medicine or family medicine.
At the University of Colorado Geriatric Medicine Fellowship, we believe that diversity enhances the learning environment for both trainees and faculty, strengthens ties to the communities we serve, and contributes to improvement in health outcomes and delivery of high quality, person-centered care. We are committed to recruiting and supporting a diverse group of fellows including traditionally underrepresented groups and to creating an inclusive environment that embraces diversity in race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, religion, political beliefs, rural upbringing, and socioeconomic status.
