Program Highlights

  • Ours is one of the longest running geriatric medicine fellowship programs in the United States, proudly training geriatricians for more than 35 years.
  • Fellows see patients in acute, post-acute, and ambulatory settings alongside outstanding physician-educators who are recognized locally and nationally for their clinical and teaching skills.
  • Our program is supported equally by the William S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital and the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics, providing fellows with in-depth experiences at both sites.
  • Strong interdisciplinary teams support the fellows in their work to provide excellent care to patients across all sites.
  • Fellows interested in pursuing additional training in research, education, or public policy related to Geriatrics can apply for a VA Fellowship in Advanced Geriatrics through our Geriatrics Research Education and Clinical Center and remain in Madison for up to three additional years of mentored learning.
