We offer a comprehensive two-year fellowship program in geriatric medicine that integrates nationally recognized academic and clinical resources. Our program seeks to train exceptional and caring physicians to become future leaders in geriatric medicine. It is designed for physicians completing training in Internal Medicine or Family Practice who have completed their residency in the United States. As a Hartford Center of Excellence, fellows receive thorough training in research methodology and medical education. Fellows also benefit from the opportunity to work closely with experienced and nationally renowned researchers and educators within the Division as well as at Weill-Cornell, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Rockefeller University and the Hospital for Special Surgery. Clinical training sites include the Wright Center on Aging, a state-of-the-art community-based primary care facility; Amsterdam House, the division's teaching nursing home; and the Hospital for Special Surgery, one of the country's leading providers of medical and surgical arthritis care. Fellows also benefit from our strong interdisciplinary relationships with social workers, therapists and other health care providers. We are currently accepting applications for the July 2013 to 2014 program year.
