Rochester Regional Health
Welcome to the Geriatric Fellowship at Rochester Regional Health. We are excited to offer a one year fellowship in geriatrics that will encompass the wide spectrum of clinical scenarios found in our aging population. The Fellowship will be centered through Rochester General Hospital with extensions into inpatient and outpatient geriatrics, skilled nursing rehabilitation, long term care, and with our affiliated PACE program. The Fellowship will also develop leadership skills for geriatricians in roles as medical directors for long term care and outpatient geriatric practices. Upstate New York has long been a center respected for its development of programs centered in Geriatrics. Rochester Regional Health is home to one of the longer standing PACE programs in the country and recently has been awarded through its Unity Hospital site, recognition from the American College of Surgeons Geriatric Surgery Verification Program.
Our faculty looks forward to training the next generation of geriatricians. Thank you for considering our fellowship. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.
