Research Clinical Scholar Training

Our Clinical Geriatrics Fellowship includes a Professional Development rotation that enables fellows to learn more about our broad research mission and to work with the internationally known research faculty of the Sticht Center on Aging. Fellows are encouraged to participate in research during their clinical year; many of these experiences result in national poster presentations and publications. In the last 5 years, three of our clinical fellows have won their poster division at the American Geriatrics Society Annual Meeting.

For prospective fellows interested in pursuing a two-year clinical scholar track, we offer two pathways for research training. These have guided our former fellows in achieving independent research careers:

  • Gerontological Research Training Grant
    Offers experience in aging research with a focus on obtaining the skills needed to pursue a career in clinical, epidemiological, or translational research. Fellows in this track may pursue a Masters of Science degree in Clinical and Population Translational Science or a Certificate within the School of Public Health Science.

  • Rural Academic Geriatrics Training Program
    Offered in partnership with the W.G. (Bill) Hefner Veteran's Affairs Hospital in Salisbury NC, this program supports 75% of a fellow’s time to pursue scholarly work that will improve medical care for rural-dwelling older adults. Prior work has focused on improving quality of care delivered to veterans in the nursing home setting.
