GERIATRIC MEDICINE FELLOWSHIP BROCHURE

The Geriatric Medicine Fellowship is open to board-certified physicians and residency graduates in family medicine and internal medicine. The fellowship, a one-year program, is a collaborative effort between the University of Missouri Departments of Family and Community Medicine, Internal Medicine, Psychiatry, and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

The Geriatric Medicine Fellowship program is fully accredited, and upon successfully completing their year-long training, fellowship graduates meet the requirements to take the Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ) examination in Geriatric Medicine.

CLINICAL TRAINING

for Geriatric Medicine Fellows includes three or four weekly sessions of ambulatory practice. Fellows also participate in comprehensive geriatric assessment with a multidisciplinary team.

Geriatric Medicine Fellows also follow nursing home, hospice, and home care patients. For three months, they have one day per week of geropsychiatry, and for six months, they work part-time with the Family Medicine inpatient service and perform geriatrics consults throughout the hospital. There are also one-month block rotations in physical medicine and rehabilitation and palliative care. In clinic, Fellows supervise students and residents.
