Residents meet for CRIT to discuss geriatric medicine

Combined Internal Medicine & Geriatrics Residency

Serve a growing population of seniors by becoming a geriatrician in our Combined Internal Medicine & Geriatrics Residency.

Why Internal Medicine and Geriatrics?

As one of only two U.S. programs that combine a residency and fellowship in geriatric medicine and internal medicine, our training prepares geriatricians to deliver evidenced-based, patient-centered care.

After the three-year residency, our trainees are board-eligible in Internal Medicine. After completing the Geriatric Medicine Fellowship in year 4, graduates are eligible for certification in the subspecialty of Geriatric Medicine. Alumni practice in community, hospital, post-acute care, long-term care, VA medical care and rehab settings. Our graduates also excel as educators and fellowship directors, emerging as leaders in the field.
