First year geriatrics fellows have the opportunity to apply for multiple unique advanced fellowships funded through the VA to enhance their expertise in research and education.

Although the majority of fellows’ efforts while participating in these advanced fellowships will be spent within the VA Health Systems, fellows are encouraged to maintain an affiliate faculty appointment at Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine. In such, they will have the opportunity receive ongoing mentorship and support in their scholarly project(s) from Boston University Geriatrics faculty, as well as be engaged in teaching opportunities for medical students, residents and fellows. Of note, given that all above advanced fellowships are supported by VA funding, applicants must currently be U.S. Citizens for consideration.
