Geriatric Fellowship

The Physician Fellowship Program in Geriatric Medicine at Duke University Medical Center has a long, proud tradition of excellence in clinical care, teaching, and research.

The Fellowship Program can be structured from one to three years, depending upon individual needs and goals.

The first year of clinical training of the fellowship satisfies the ACGME's guidelines. Upon successful completion of the year, fellows may qualify for a Certificate of Added Qualifications in Geriatrics through their subspecialty Board.

Beyond the first year, fellows may complete an additional year or two of coursework and training and undertake scholarly projects in their field of interest - including clinical or basic science research, curriculum design and clinical education, public health and health policy, and health administration. The format, while intensive, is also very flexible, allowing participants to customize their training experience according to their personal career goals.
