The Geriatric Fellowship program at East Carolina University was one of the first in the country. This program was established in 1984 and was accredited by The Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in 1988. Each year, we will take up to four fellows and we are approaching 60 graduates. All the graduates that have taken the CAQ exam in the past ten years have passed it.
Our well-established fellowship program in an academic environment allows you to achieve well-rounded goals with teaching, research, and many other scholarly activities:
The education and clinical opportunities are designed to allow the fellow to assume progressive responsibility for geriatric patient care and to create a comprehensive team approach to the management of these patients. The faculty is committed to providing didactic learning as well as clinical opportunities.
