Geriatric Medicine Fellowship


The University of Michigan Geriatric Medicine Fellowship Program, led by Director Caroline Vitale, MD, AGSF and Associate Director Erika Manu, MD, is a one-year ACGME accredited interdisciplinary training program. It offers a wealth of opportunities for qualified physicians who wish to train as geriatricians. Since 1981, the program has trained over 130 physicians now practicing in a full range of successful careers, from traditional academic medicine to clinical geriatrics. Our program has 30+ full-time faculty in the Division, and additional resources including the Geriatric Research Education and Clinical Center (GRECC) at the affiliated Ann Arbor VA.

Our fellowship program offers a strong clinical focus, with trainees providing treatment and consultation in a wide variety of settings; eight clinical rotations in total. The University of Michigan is currently ranked in the top 8 programs in US News and World Report for Geriatrics. The role of Geriatricians continues to evolve as we are in demand now more than ever. We pride ourselves in teaching the leaders of tomorrow.

The Geriatric Medicine Fellowship Program also offers advanced fellowship 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 fellowship. The opportunities are truly endless.

In addition to our outstanding clinical training program the University of Michigan offers highly competitive salaries, lump sum payments (to encourage saving), four weeks of vacation and many other benefits to our Geriatric Fellows.
