Research

The JHU Geriatrics Fellowship Program has multiple research training opportunities that cover a wide range of issues that impact the health and well-being of older adults.  This two- to three-year program is designed for scientists with advanced degrees (e.g., PhD, ScD) interested in developing a research career focused on problems pertinent to geriatric medicine and gerontology, or for physicians (MD, DO) with training in Geriatric Medicine or in other disciplines who want to pursue research training focused on problems of aging.   Trainees can be affiliated with a number of research programs that thrive within the division, including the Biology of Healthy Aging Program, Epidemiology and Biostatistics of Aging, Dementia and Cognitive Decline, Patient-Oriented Health Services Research.  Divisional faculty collaborate broadly across multiple disciplines and mentorship and training resources are available from Neurology, Psychiatry, Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Basic Biology, Clinical Investigation, Pharmacology, among others.   For more information about these Johns Hopkins based programs and possible opportunities for research training, see links below.  In addition, some training opportunities exist in collaboration with faculty at the National Institute on Aging Intramural Research Program and through the Baltimore Longitudinal Study on Aging, located on the Hopkins Bayview Medical Center Campus.
