Fellowship Education

The Division offers Fellowship programs in the following areas:

Geriatric Medicine Fellowship

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. Fellows 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.

Hospice & Palliative Medicine Fellowship

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, an ambulatory clinic in the Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center, Hospice of the Piedmont, Hospice of the Shenandoah, and several local hospice 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.

All applications are through the Electronic Residency Application Service, ERAS, and the National Residency Matching Program, NRMP fellowship match.
