The UC Davis Health Department of Emergency Medicine offers a one- or two-year Geriatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship, the latter with an option for a Masters level advanced degree. The goal of the fellowship is to provide clinically excellent training in the emerging field of Geriatric Emergency Medicine, with experience in education, research, operations, and policy.  There will be a strong emphasis on improving the care of the elderly patient in the emergency department, safe discharge practices, multidisciplinary teams, and perioperative management. The graduating fellow will be able to use this experience to further develop Geriatric Emergency Medicine in the academic or community setting. Fellows will gain clinical experience in the management of geriatric patients through outpatient geriatric clinics, general medicine consult services, observation units, and from a selection of experiences in clinical pharmacy units, chest pain evaluation programs, home based primary care, neurology outpatient and residential services, and from subspecialty surgery experience. The Fellow will work part-time in the emergency department at UC Davis Medical Center and the Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) emergency department at Mather Field in Sacramento. Interested applicants should contact Katren Tyler, the Geriatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship director.
