Family Medicine - Geriatric Medicine Fellowship

Welcome

The Geriatric Medicine Fellowship at the University of Iowa is a one-year, ACGME-accredited program that focuses on the care of older adults in the UI Geriatrics Assessment Clinic, area long-term care facilities, UI inpatient units, a nearby VA Medical Center and the homes of patients.

Fellows are an integral part of the clinically-based multidisciplinary geriatrics team and develop a large patient panel in the Geriatrics Assessment Clinic. Fellows also work with local hospices, home care organizations, adult day program sand other community and state agencies.

Rotations in geropsychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and neurology are supplemented by a wide range of elective options and research opportunities.
