GME Applicant Information

The Geriatric Medicine Clinical Fellowship is co-sponsored by the University of Wisconsin (UW) Hospital and Clinics and the Geriatric Research Education and Clinical Center (GRECC) at the William S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital. This ACGME-accredited fellowship has successfully trained physicians in geriatrics for over 35 years.

Fellows learn to provide geriatric care in a number of different settings as both a primary care geriatrician and a consultant. The fellowship is organized with both block experiences and year-long longitudinal training.

Throughout the year, fellows practice longitudinal primary care in the VA Geriatric Patient Aligned Care Teams (Geri-PACT) clinic one half day per week.  This VA clinic has a unique and well-developed staffing model that incorporates combined geriatric medicine and geriatric psychiatry oversight.  Fellows may also select a UW ambulatory clinic specific to her/his career goals and can spend up to one half day per week exploring this interest throughout the year. All experiences provide opportunities to work in high-functioning interdisciplinary teams.
