The purpose of the Vanderbilt Geriatric Medicine Fellowship Program is to produce leaders who provide the best possible care to their patients and make important contributions to the field of geriatrics, to healthcare, and to the communities in which they work.  Since its inception in 2000, our interdisciplinary, multi-campus program at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and the VA Tennessee Valley Healthcare System has trained 24 fellows who hold successful careers in academic medicine, community leadership, private practice, and additional subspecialty areas including Hematology/Oncology, Cardiology, and Palliative Care. The program is affiliated with the Vanderbilt Center for Quality in Aging and the VA Tennessee Valley Geriatric Research Education, and Clinical Center (GRECC)

 We offer four training tracks:

  • ACGME-accredited 1-year Clinical Geriatric Medicine Fellowship (pre-requisite for below)
  • VA Special Fellowship in Advanced Geriatrics
  • VA Quality Scholars Fellowship Program
  • Aging Research Fellowship

The Vanderbilt Geriatric Medicine Fellowship Program has three positions for the 1-year year Clinical Geriatric Medicine Fellowship and is open to physicians who have completed an ACGME-accredited residency program in either Internal Medicine or Family Medicine.

We are eager to personalize your learning for your unique career aspirations to further your growth as a leader in geriatric medicine. We welcome your inquiries!
