Geriatrics Fellowship

Overview

Goal

To provide training for ABFM or ABIM Certified/Eligible Physicians to become effective, efficient and compassionate geriatricians who will pass their CAQ examination in Geriatric Medicine and pursue careers in geriatric medicine.

Status

The Geriatrics Fellowship Program has been fully accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education since 1987 and has graduated 54 geriatricians through 2008. In 2006, the geriatric fellowship program was realigned through the generous support of the Francis E Parker Memorial Homes (www.FrancisEParker.com) to be integrated into the newly established Center for Health Aging at Parker Stonegate (CHAPS) of the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School Department of Family Medicine and Community Health.

The program is administratively linked with the Family Medicine Residency Program at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital but welcomes applicants from either family medicine or internal medicine backgrounds into its 12 month training program.
