VA Fellowship in Advanced Geriatrics

The purpose of the VA Advanced Fellowship in Geriatrics is to offer post-specialty education to foster the development of leadership in health care issues of the elderly. The program capitalizes on the international prominence of VA's Geriatric Research, Education, and Clinical Centers (GRECCs) to provide outstanding training opportunities in clinical practice, to contribute to the improvement of clinical practice, and to advance scholarly pursuits that will benefit care for elderly veterans and all older Americans.


Physician fellows must have completed an ACGME or AOA accredited residency, and either already be certified or are actively pursuing board certification. This program shall not lead to board-eligibility in Geriatrics for physicians. Non-physicians must be post-doctoral for an associated health discipline.
