About the Program
Our Geriatrics Fellowship will prepare you to be an extraordinary geriatric leader who will serve as a catalyst and advocate to foster quality of care for older adults and their caregivers through education, research and clinical care.
In addition to the varied clinical experience, fellows participate in a robust curriculum supported by the exceptional academic resources of the Texas Medical Center and receive personalized mentoring from geriatrics faculty. Fellows are encouraged to pursue a second year of training in one of our advanced fellowship tracks, including an ACGME-accredited palliative care fellowship, wound care, medical education and quality improvement.
Southeast Texas Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program
The fellowship program is pleased to be associated with the Southeast Texas Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program (SETxGWEP). Information about the SETxGWEP, a robust community of healthcare professionals collaborating to promote the principles of age-friendly care to improve health outcomes for all of us as we age, is available. The Southeast Texas GWEP is funded by the federal Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) with the Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine Section at Baylor College of Medicine as the leader and is one of only two GWEP U01 grants in Texas. The website is a repository of interprofessional training and education resources specifically on the care of aging adults. We invite you to explore the site and share it widely with colleagues, family and friends for valuable resources for older adults, caregivers, and healthcare professionals serving older adults.
