VA Advanced Fellowhip in Geriatrics
The VA Advanced Fellowship in Geriatrics offers post-specialty education to develop leadership in health care issues of the elderly. The GRECC offers outstanding training opportunities in clinical practice and the advancement of scholarly pursuits that will benefit care for elderly Veterans and all older Americans.
Physician candidates must have completed an ACGME or AOA accredited residency, and either be board certified or actively pursuing board certification. This program does not lead to board-eligibility in Geriatrics for physicians. Non-physicians must be post-doctoral in an associated health discipline.
