Program Highlights

The Geriatric Medicine Fellowship offered by the Division of Geriatric Medicine at UMass is a one-year ACGME approved Fellowship for physicians trained in internal medicine or family medicine. The Division of Geriatric Medicine is dually situated within the Department of Medicine and the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, with fellowship faculty from both departments.

Our fellowship focuses on maximizing the health of older adults as they navigate across the continuum of care. Fellows learn the principles of Geriatric Medicine through a combination of longitudinal and block clinical care experiences in the outpatient, inpatient, home, long-term care, and subacute care settings. Fellows work closely with Division and other UMass faculty and community resources, and have opportunities for teaching medical students and residents. Additional learning activities include the Geriatric Medicine Conference, Quality Improvement Project.
