Geriatric Medicine Fellowship

The one-year, ACGME-accredited Geriatric Medicine Fellowship at the University of Arizona offers outstanding clinical, research and learning experiences to physicians pursuing a career in geriatric medicine and related subfields.

The small size of the fellowship program provides a unique learning environment and promotes personalized, individual career development. Our nationally-recognized faculty include recipients of the John A. Hartford Geriatric Leadership Scholar Award and the Geriatric Academic Career Award. Our graduates successfully enter career paths in academic medicine, clinical care and geriatric program development. Diversity, equity, and social justice are core values at Banner Health and the University of Arizona, and we are passionate about building and sustaining an inclusive team open to people from all backgrounds because we know that diversity in experiences and perspectives is vital to advancing innovation and solving complex problems.

Physicians who have completed training in an accredited program in Anesthesiology, Internal Medicine or Family Medicine are eligible to apply. The fellowship is administered through the Division of General Internal Medicine, Geriatrics & Palliative Medicine in the Department of Medicine at the UArizona College of Medicine – Tucson, in partnership with the Southern Arizona VA Health Care System.

Fellows also are encouraged to pursue a Master's in Public Health at the University of Arizona Mel & Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health
