Is the Swedish Geriatric Medicine Fellowship for YOU?

  • Are you interested in a faculty position at a medical school or residency program someday?
  • Would you like to be the expert in geriatrics wherever you choose to work?
  • Do you want further training from our faculty certified in both geriatrics & palliative care to help develop clinical expertise, and graduate much better prepared to manage multiple chronic diseases, cognitive impairment, polypharmacy, end-of-life planning, and palliative care?
  • Would you like ever increasing, exciting job opportunities?

If you answer YES to any of these questions, please contact me directly and we can talk about whether you would be a good fit for our fellowship program.

While the geriatric medicine fellowship will allow you to develop expertise, it won’t limit your ability to practice to the full extent of your training. Many of our grads have gone on to full-spectrum family medicine jobs in primary care practice groups and community health centers, with the added confidence of expert training in the care of the fastest-growing population in ambulatory practice, patients over age 65.

Compensation is above the fellowship average, with a generous 15 days/ $5000 CME package and applications are taken through the NRMP Fellowship Match Program through the summer and fall; we interview in October. Apply via ERAS starting in July!
