Geriatric Medicine - Grant Medical Center

The Department of Family Medicine offers postgraduate training in geriatric medicine through a one-year clinical fellowship. After the completion of the fellowship, the graduate may sit for the Certificate of Added Qualification in Geriatrics. The Grant Geriatric Fellowship is fully accredited by the ACGME.


Candidates must have completed an ACGME accredited three-year residency program in either family medicine or internal medicine. All applicants must be United States citizens or permanent residents, as the hospital is unable to sponsor or support any visas. Applicants must be eligible for licensure in Ohio.

Two fellows are accepted annually and have an anticipated start date in July. Applications for the fellowship are due by April 1 to be considered for a July start date. Applications are accepted through ERAS.
