Integrated Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine Fellowship

Integrated Geriatric and Palliative Medicine Fellowship

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital’s Weill Cornell and Columbia Campuses have joined together and are excited to offer a two-year Integrated Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine Fellowship through the American Board of Internal Medicine Competency-Based Medical Education pilot program. The program will officially begin to recruit candidates in August 2021 to begin the program in July 2022.

The integrated fellowship will combine resources from the existing Geriatrics Fellowship and Palliative Medicine Fellowship programs to meet core competency requirements in addition to allowing for five months of scholarly activity and professional development.
