Additional Training

2nd & 3rd Year Fellowship Opportunities: VA Special Fellowship in Advanced Geriatrics

For physicians who have completed their year of palliative medicine fellowship training, geriatric medicine, or geriatric psychiatry, there is an opportunity for up to two additional years of academic training in Palliative Care. This opportunity is offered to fellows who are interested in an academic career with 75% of their time protected for research/scholarly activities.

The goal of this advanced fellowship is to develop outstanding academic and/or health care system leaders with vision and knowledge in geriatrics who are committed to leading the discipline in the 21st century.

This VA fellowship provides outstanding geriatric medicine, palliative medicine, or geriatric psychiatry research training, interdisciplinary educational opportunities, and advanced clinical and program administration learning opportunities.

Fellows have the flexibility to personalize the curriculum based on their interests, and can further their development toward careers as researchers, clinician educators, and/or medical directors.

Robert Hogikyan, MD, MPH, directs the Ann Arbor site for this program.
