The goal of the University of Washington Geriatric Medicine Fellowship Program is to prepare future leaders and innovators in geriatric medicine. We aim to provide the highest quality training with an emphasis on diversity in patient population, expansive sites of practice/exposure to models of care, individualized mentorship, and scholarly and teaching experience.

Our renowned and dedicated faculty members, in conjunction with comprehensive clinical and scholarly training, provides fellows with exceptional interprofessional learning opportunities at each of our three world-class medical facilities and beyond: Harborview Medical Center, VA Puget Sound, and the University of Washington Medical Center, as well as community-based experiences (e.g. Program for All Inclusive Care of the Elderly; Area Agency on Aging), nursing home care via our cutting edge Post Acute Care Service, and home visits.

Leaders in various facets of Aging and Geriatric Medicine throughout the country, as well as many of our own Division faculty, started their careers in our fellowship program.

We welcome and encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds, including those who are underrepresented in medicine. Diversity enriches the educational experience for all faculty and fellows as we prepare the next generation of leaders in geriatric medicine.
