Thank you for your interest in the Geriatric Fellowship Program of the University of Pennsylvania. As a national leader in research, medical education and clinical care, the Perelman School of Medicine provides fellows with a wealth of resources and opportunities to train future geriatricians. The goal of the fellowship is to produce future academic leaders in clinical care, health leadership and quality improvement, education and research.
The foundation of the fellowship is a one year clinical experience designed to achieve excellence in every core competency of geriatrics and develop future academic potential. Fellows will train at a variety of clinical sites to get a breadth of experience. Training will be led by 20 faculty, many of whom have national recognition for their expertise in clinical care, research and education and have served in leadership positions in various academic geriatric organizations.
For those interested in further training to prepare for an academic career, there are opportunities to have second and third years focused on education, quality improvement and health leadership, research and areas of clinical focus. Many of these opportunities include getting a certificate or master's degree.
Fellows have gone on to a wide variety of successful careers.
