Geriatric EM Fellowship

Institution Application

Approval of a Geriatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship program is contingent upon a review of the institutional environment, success of prior graduates and current members of the faculty fellowship team, and proposed curriculum for future fellows. All approved institutions must have an ACGME-approved emergency medicine residency and support for geriatric programs in place. They must demonstrate strong collaboration with geriatric clinicians, educators, and researchers as well as with other clinical services that supervise relevant rotations.  This support may frequently be provided by collaboration with an existing internal medicine geriatric fellowship program.  If such a program is not available for collaboration at an applying institution, careful attention will be given by reviewers to ensure adequate support, including the opportunity for mentorship from several geriatricians is in place. Institutions must meet the criteria as set forth in the Request for Applications [pdf].
