Geriatric Medicine Fellowship

MetroHealth’s one-year Fellowship in Geriatric Medicine is designed to educate internists and Family Practitioners in the discipline of geriatrics. The expertise attained through this training program will lay the foundation for future practitioners to apply their skills across the continuum of care. Our physicians will be competent clinicians, academicians, clinical researchers, and administrators able to provide care in a variety of clinical settings, including acute, chronic, inpatient, and outpatient, as well long-term care. 

The program provides a myriad of clinical settings in the best available training sites, allowing participants to learn and practice geriatric medicine. This environment fosters learning and teaching, and helps prepare students for future academic faculty positions in geriatric medicine. The successful completion of this ACGME-approved program qualifies fellows to sit for the CAQ (Certificate of Added Qualifications in geriatric medicine) given by one's primary discipline, ABIM or ABFP. Read a welcome from program leadership, and see details of the fellowship curriculum.

Geriatric Services within the MetroHealth System

Nursing Homes

MetroHealth's future skilled nursing patients will be treated at the new multimillion-dollar skilled nursing and rehabilitation center being developed with ProMedica on the Old Brooklyn Campus. The new ProMedica Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation at MetroHealth is expected to open later this year. The state-of-the-art facility will have 96 beds.

It will provide medically complex and intensive rehabilitation services for short-term patients transitioning from hospital to home, in addition to 24-hour skilled nursing care. Old Brooklyn will become a hub for healthy aging resources that not only includes skilled nursing and rehabilitation services provided by ProMedica, but also offers convenient access to inpatient rehabilitation services, geriatricians and geriatric specialists.

Senior Health and Wellness Clinic

The following is a list of health care services available through Senior Health:

PACE

PACE is a managed health care program that integrates acute and long-term services for frail older persons who have multiple health problems and require a structured, supportive set of services to remain in the community and avoid frequent hospitalizations and nursing home placement. A multidisciplinary team provides both preventive and ongoing care at the Day Health Center, in participants' homes, and in a hospital or nursing home when necessary.
