Clinical Track

Clinical Track

This track is a one-year, ACGME-accredited training pathway which allows fellows to experience the geriatrician’s role in a wide range of ongoing clinical programs. These include an inpatient geriatrics consultation service, physician house-call program, subacute care in an affiliated community nursing home, chronic hospital unit, CARF-accredited geriatrics rehabilitation unit, adult day care center, Hopkins ElderPlus PACE site, urinary continence clinic, geropsychiatric assessment services, and the inpatient Medical Behavior Unit (dementia/delirium). 

Each first-year fellow also rotates through the Baltimore VA Medical Center, as part of our collaboration in fellowship training.  Typically, this is done in 2-3 month blocks.

There are also longitudinal experiences in ambulatory primary care geriatrics clinics and the Johns Hopkins “Memory Clinic”; fellows also maintain a panel of nursing home residents at FutureCare Northpoint (less than two miles from the Bayview campus). 

All fellows spend time teaching medical students and residents from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Completion of our clinical fellowship fulfills all requirements of the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Family Practice, and graduates are eligible to sit for the Examination for a Board Certification offered by the American Board of Internal Medicine or the Certificate of Added Qualification in Geriatric Medicine offered by the American Board of Family Medicine.

Requirements

Between two and six fellows are accepted each year. The year-long fellowship is open to physicians who have completed three years of clinical training in internal medicine or family practice and are interested in special training in the care of older adults.
