Clinical Training in the Wake Forest University Geriatric Fellowship Program
In the Geriatrics Fellowship Program, there are 10 faculty members directly involved with clinical training and more than 30 faculty members involved via interdepartmental programs. Training occurs across the continuum of care, from an inpatient acute care for the elderly (ACE) unit, to ambulatory primary care and consultation, to house calls and long-term care.
Graduates of our fellowship pursue careers as private practice doctors, house call physicians, Medical Directors in nursing homes, and as academic geriatricians with interest in patient care, education, and research.
Although our one year program is primarily clinical, there are multiple opportunities for fellows to participate in research during and beyond the clinical year. We encourage fellows to explore questions of interest, with the support of our Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center and the Hartford Foundation Center of Excellence.
