The Division offers fellowship programs in the following areas:
The Geriatric training program is 12 months in duration, all of which includes clinical education. It is organized to provide a well-supervised, well-documented experience at a sufficient level for the fellow to acquire all of the competencies of a physician with added qualifications in the field of Geriatric Medicine. Geriatric medicine residents are given the opportunity to provide both primary care and consultation for patients in acute, ambulatory, community, and long-term care settings in order to understand the interaction of natural aging and disease as well as the techniques of assessment, therapy, and management.
The Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship Program provides a rich, one year clinical and research experience. Diverse clinical training settings include the University of Virginia Medical Center, Legacy Hospice, Hospice of the Piedmont, and several local long-term care facilities. In all settings, care will be provided for patients across the continuum of serious illness from diagnosis, through treatment, during remission or cure, and at the end-of-life.
