Training Leaders in Geriatrics
The Duke Division of Geriatrics is a pioneer in establishing programs to train physician-scientists and clinician-educators in geriatric medicine.
To meet the rapidly growing need for physicians trained to provide the specialized care that many older people require, the Geriatrics Fellowship Program at Duke University Medical Center offers one of the nation's most comprehensive and rigorous academic programs in the field.
Our program trains excellent physicians to become leaders in clinical care, research, an education in geriatrics and gerontology. The experiences and mentoring provided in the course of the fellowship help trainees identify career goals and take the first crucial steps toward achieving them. Many of our former fellows are division chiefs and program directors around the nation.
The curriculum is enriched with training in evidence-based medicine, clinical teaching skills, quality improvement, and interdisciplinary team care.
The Geriatrics Fellowship Program capitalizes on the facilities of the Duke Center for the Study of Aging and Development and the Durham Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
