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 aging-related issues. Research training can be combined for physicians with a clinical geriatrics fellowship year for a total of a 3-year research fellowship program.
Trainees can be affiliated with a number of research programs that thrive within the division, including programs in Basic to Clinical Translational Aging Research, Health Services and Outcomes Research for Older Populations, Cognitive Decline/Dementia Research, , Epidemiology and Biostatistics of Aging, Frailty, Health Services, Information Technology and Multimorbidity, and Biology of Healthy Aging. Divisional faculty collaborate broadly across multiple disciplines. Mentorship and training resources are available from Nursing, Neurology, Psychiatry, Epidemiology, Health Policy & Management, Biostatistics, Basic Biology, Clinical Investigation, Pharmacology, among others.
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.
