Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship

The mission of our Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship Program at the University of Rochester Medical Center is to:

  • Educate geriatric psychiatry fellows to achieve subspecialty expertise, consistent with both ACGME requirements and our own sense of the knowledge, skills and attitudes required for such expertise.
  • Encourage our fellows to consider career paths that include teaching and research, including the pursuit of additional degree or research fellowship training if appropriate, and to consider working in clinical settings that emphasize cross-specialty and cross-disciplinary collaborations.
  • Provide subspecialty training through clinical epxeriences in inpatient, consultation, ambulatory, long-term care and community settings, with an appropriate balance of supervised yet independent functioning.
