MissionThe mission of the Beaumont Health Geriatric Fellowship is to provide interested physicians with a competent, confident background in the care and management of the afflictions of the elderly, while exposing trainees to the wide range
of practices that Geriatric Medicine entails. Our teaching faculty includes board certified geriatricians in all subsets of geriatric medicine, allowing didactic and practical experience in medical administration of long-term care programs, inpatient
and outpatient settings.
Along with Beaumont Health Graduate Medical Education, the Fellowship in Geriatric Medicine prides itself on an institutional commitment to quality patient care, education and research. Our graduates are able to
provide comprehensive care for elderly patients across the health care continuum, manage a broad spectrum of geriatric syndromes, understand regulatory and reimbursement issues in health care for the elderly, and recognize study design and statistical
analysis used for research or quality improvement initiatives.
