Geriatric Medicine Fellowship
The goal of our one year ACGME-accredited fellowship program is to provide fellows with the knowledge, skills, and experience necessary to achieve excellence in clinical geriatrics, teaching, and research. The Geriatric Program at Northwestern Memorial Hospital ranked is 19th in the nation (top program in Chicago), according to the U.S. News and World Report (July 2009).
The fellowship program offers clinical experiences covering the full spectrum of problems confronted in the elderly. Program sites include Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, and Warren Barr Pavilion (a skill nursing/long term care facility). Rotations at these sites include inpatient geriatric consultation service, ambulatory care, subacute and long-term care, acute rehabilitation, cognitive neurology, hospice/palliative care, geriatric psychiatry and other subspecialty experiences.
The faculty of the Division of Geriatrics comprises experienced and dedicated geriatricians with research backgrounds in clinical medicine, palliative / hospice care, dementia, hospital safety and transitional care, cancer in aging and drug safety, long term care and bone health. Formal collaboration in research and geriatric / gerontology education exists between the Division and Buehler Center on Aging of Northwestern University. We offer optional second year experience to interested and qualified candidates who are expected to participate in collaborative research projects with faculty mentors.
