Geriatric Medicine Fellowship - Grant Medical Center

We prepare our fellows for lifelong careers in the care of elderly people.

OhioHealth Grant Medical Center offers a one-year fellowship in geriatric medicine. Our fellows are involved throughout all aspects of patient care and treatment alongside our expert geriatric and trauma physicians. Nationally, we have been recognized as the fifth busiest Level 1 trauma center. The fellowship is available to candidates who have completed a residency in family or internal medicine and are board-eligible physicians. 

Team-Based Training Environment

Mentorship Program

We match fellows with an experienced faculty member to provide one-to-one guidance centered on engagement, leadership, research, interpersonal skills and career development. The overall goal is for each fellow to have a "go to" person who understands the stressors of academic medicine and supports growth and wellness. Faculty members are asked to take an active role in the following:

  • Development of the fellows’ professional goals and objectives.
  • Assist each fellow work within the system to seek solutions to problems as they arise both professionally and personally.
  • Monitor fellows’ progress through the training program and provide both positive feedback and constructive criticism.

  • Dedicated days off to attend medical, mental health, and dental care appointments.
  • Free on-site fitness center membership.
