Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship

Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship

The Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education. Fellows develop expertise in the prevention, evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of geriatric illnesses using systems-based care throughout the continuum of care. Recovery-based care principles are emphasized in the training. The fellowship offers rich experiences in interdisciplinary clinical care as well as clinical research with a network of faculty investigators.

During their training, fellows are supervised by clinicians with specialty training in geriatric psychiatry, consult liaison psychiatry, neuropsychiatry, geriatric medicine, and neuropsychology in a wide range of clinical venues. Interdisciplinary collaboration is a critical aspect of geriatric practice; fellows work closely with nurses, psychologists, and social workers with geriatric expertise in interdisciplinary teams.
