Geriatrics clinical setting


The Geriatric Medicine Fellowship at the University of Iowa is a one-year, ACGME-accredited program that focuses on the unique care needs of older adults. Our fellows provide ambulatory care to older adults with a multidisciplinary geriatrics team in our Geriatric Health Assessment Clinic. Our fellows also manage hospitalized older adults, and work with long-term care facilities, local hospice agencies, home care organizations, adult day programs, and other community and state agencies to provide comprehensive “whole person” care in a wide range of clinical settings.

Why Geriatrics?

Geriatric medicine is one of the most challenging and rewarding fields in medicine! Geriatric medicine focuses on the unique biological, psychological, and social aspects of aging, as well as management of medical complexity. Fellows graduate from our Geriatric Medicine Fellowship well-prepared to provide quality medical care to the older adults in their communities.
