Geriatric Medicine Fellowship, Royal Oak & Dearborn

Beaumont's Division of Geriatric Medicine provides a wide spectrum of health care for the elderly, including primary care, inpatient and outpatient geriatric multi-disciplinary consultation, subacute skilled nursing facility care, and chronic long-term care. A broad mix of ethnicities, cultures, and socio-economic groups are represented in the patient population.

We have a 95% pass rate on the CAQ examination. Previous fellows have chosen a variety of career paths including additional fellowships, faculty positions in Geriatrics, Medical Directorship of a Continuing Care Retirement Community, Medical Directorship of a Hospice, and private practice.

Mission

The 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.

Aims

The Beaumont Royal Oak Geriatric Fellowship aims to provide interested board-eligible or board-certified physicians with a competent, confident background in the care and management of elderly patients, while exposing trainees to the wide range of practices that Geriatric Medicine entails. Trainees learn about geriatric inpatient management, ambulatory evaluation, nursing home medical directorship, and palliation of chronic symptoms via practical and didactic experience in long-term care, inpatient and outpatient settings. The Fellowship program also aims to achieve excellence for both faculty and fellows in every aspect of clinical and academic practice, including comprehensive didactic education, exposure to research methods, and regular, meaningful feedback for both preceptors and trainees to assess their own practice. Our goal is to empower fellowship graduates with a comprehensive clinical knowledge base in the field of geriatric medicine that will not only allow personal and career growth, but also meet the needs of our growing geriatric patient population in Southeast Michigan.
