Welcome to the Mayo Clinic Geriatric Medicine Fellowship! We are delighted to hear of your interest in our training program.

It is an exciting time to enter the field of geriatric medicine. With the aging of our society, it has never been more important to develop strong leaders within our specialty. We offer an unparalleled training experience for those dedicated to improving the health and lives of older adults.

Here at Mayo Clinic, our unique training program provides fellows with the opportunity to hone their clinical skills across the entire care continuum. Our fellows graduate with the knowledge and skills needed to successfully care for complex older adults in the hospital and clinic as well as in long-term care, rehabilitation and community-based settings.

Our world-class teaching faculty has a passion for improving the health of older adults and for sharing their clinical talents with learners at all levels. Our faculty members are dedicated to helping fellows develop into leaders within the realms of clinical practice, geriatric medical education and geriatric medical research. Because of this intense dedication and the infrastructure of our program, we are able to offer our fellows tailored experiences to meet their evolving career development needs.

Upon reviewing this website, you will learn about each facet of our program and world-class training environment. We welcome your questions and interest.
