Geriatric Medicine Fellowship


Multidisciplinary Geriatric Medicine Team at First Hill, April 2015

Welcome to the Geriatric Medicine Fellowship at Swedish Medical Center!

The goals of our fellowship are twofold:

  • To train family medicine and internal medicine physicians in the clinical care of complex geriatric patients in the outpatient, inpatient, and long-term care settings.
  • To prepare graduates for careers in academic medicine by providing faculty-development and leadership training.

Please see the menu items to the left, to read more about how we do it!

Fellows Teaching Blog
