ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The University of Michigan Geriatric Medicine Fellowship, led by Director Caroline Vitale, MD, AGSF, is a one-year interdisciplinary program with a wealth of opportunities for qualified physicians who wish to train as geriatricians. Since 1981, the program has trained over 100 physicians now launched toward a full range of successful careers, from traditional academic medicine to clinical geriatrics. Its success flows in large part from 33 full-time faculty in the Division, and additional resources including the Geriatric Research Education and Clinical Center (GRECC) at the affiliated Ann Arbor VA.
The fellowship has a strong clinical focus, with trainees providing treatment and consultation in a wide variety of settings. The fellowship also offers advanced research training, as well as regular opportunities to teach and supervise family medicine residents, internal medicine residents and U-M medical students. We offer up to six positions for first year fellows, and further training is available for those interested in a two- or three-year academic/research-focused program.
