Welcome to the Harvard Medical School Multicampus Geriatric Medicine Fellowship website! The multicampus design allows trainees to develop knowledge and comfort in navigating different models of care including primary care, consultative care, co-management, and the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) model. Training in multiple sites promotes the development of flexible, competent geriatricians. Moreover, broad exposure to Harvard-affiliated institutions fosters opportunities to interface with leaders in geriatrics and gerontology and form lasting connections.

Mission Statement

To accomplish our mission, we provide trainees with diverse clinical experiences across multiple settings, as well as hands-on training in medical education and research.”
