(with Moorings Park of Naples, FL)
This eighteen month pathway is designed to train future academic leaders in clinical geriatrics with additional expertise in health systems management and leadership skills training. A primary goal of this training program is to prepare geriatricians who are capable of assuming positions of leadership in a range of health care settings and practices. This can include continuing care retirement communities, skilled nursing facilities, large health plans, and local or state health departments.
Training in this pathway includes one year of clinical geriatrics (see Clinical Pathway for details) at the Johns Hopkins Bayview campus in Baltimore, MD, followed by six months of mentored leadership training at the Moorings Park Communities in Naples, FL. This state-of-the-art life care community offers many opportunities for the fellow to develop personalized skills to enhance his/her own personal goals while taking full advantage of the experience and knowledge of leaders within the Moorings Park and greater Naples medical community.
Requirements and description
Sponsored by Moorings Park, this program is designed for physicians who plan to pursue management/leadership positions in geriatrics. Applicants must have MD or DO degree and will have graduated from a US medical residency in internal medicine or family medicine and commit to eighteen months of training - one year of clinical training (see Clinical Pathway for details) in Baltimore, MD and six months of leadership training in Naples, FL. The last six months of the fellowship is structured to allow time for skills development and flexibility as to how those skills would be developed, but will also include clinical time to develop the necessary ability to balance commitments and manage time in order to optimize productivity in a leadership position.
The program only accepts one fellow into the program each year. There is one first year and one second year fellow at all times.
Applicants apply through ERAS. There is a distinct track for “Clinician Leadership” (one fellow matched to this track per year).
Applications for fellowship will be accepted July through September.
