The completion of a 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.
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. Preference is given to candidates who are planning to enter careers in clinical education or clinical administrative leadership.
Applications are accepted two years in advance. The application must be received no later than December 31 of the year before the year you are applying for a fellowship. For example, if you were applying for a fellowship beginning in July 2012, your application must be received no later than December 31, 2011. If there are slots available, later applications will be accepted. Learn more about how to apply.
