Geriatric Medicine Fellowship

Program Overview

 

Clinical Experience

Clinical experience is gained in various ways: ambulatory clinic, long term care facilities, and clinical rotations.
Fellows spend two half-days each week in the ambulatory clinic; this time allows for one-on-one learning with the preceptor and different patient cases.  In addition to three month-long rotations in  the long-term-care facilities, the fellows care for patients with monthly continuity visits. Clinical rotations include neurology, geriatric psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation, emergency medicine, hospice and palliative care, wound care, and two electives.

Weekly Didactics

Weekly didactic conferences are taught by the core faculty as well as specialty-specific speakers from the UTMC community. Fellows are often joined by residents, physician assistant students, and medical students that participate in a geriatric medicine rotation. Fellows are also expected to prepare and present lectures for the junior learners to benefit from as collaboration between the learners is encouraged. Our fellowship utilizes the Blackboard Distance Learning Program offered through The University of Toledo as an excellent teaching/learning resource. Blackboard gives fellows and other learners on-line access to a variety of educational materials, tools, and resources all in one organized location. The University of Toledo Libraries have excellent resources available on-line as well; this includes but is not limited to full textbook chapters and journal articles.
