Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship

The geriatric psychiatry fellowship program values hands-on interprofessional education, mentorship, research, clinical care, and the patient-centered experience.

The geriatric psychiatry fellowship finds its home in Rowan-Virtua SOM’s nationally recognized New Jersey Institute of Successful Aging (NJISA). It is a one-year program that is completed after graduating from a general psychiatry residency. The program emphasizes integrated learning and an interdisciplinary team-based approach to patient and caregiver care across various training settings.

The curriculum is comprised of clinical, research, teaching, and administrative components. Time and schedules can be individualized based on any given fellow’s professional interests. For fellows wishing to pursue research, dedicated academic time can be made available. For those most interested in clinical experience, experiences in ambulatory, acute, subacute, and long-term care facilities performing both primary care and consultation are available.

All fellows are expected to complete a scholarly research paper based on a completed project of their choosing after discussion with a supervisor.
