Family practice and internal medicine physicians who desire a certificate of added qualifications in geriatric medicine can apply for a one-year geriatric medicine fellowship. A geriatric psychiatry fellowship is also available at UAB. A palliative care fellowship is available for physicians who want to obtain credentials in end-of-life care.

Long-term (generally one year or longer) research training is available through:

  1. Geriatric Medicine Fellowship Program
  2. VA Special Fellowship and Advanced Geriatrics
  3. Deep South Resource Center for Minority Aging Research (RCMAR)
  4. Geriatric Education Center (GEC)
  5. Gerontology Education Program

UAB graduate students can apply for a scholarship to support a mentored research experience in aging through the Gerontology Education Program. GEP students also pursue community-based, service-oriented experiences.

Physicians who are pursuing relevant postdoctoral training or who are early career faculty members committed to geriatrics as an academic career may apply for support through the Southeast Center of Excellence in Geriatric Medicine, either to pursue career development activities related to research or as a clinician-educator.

The Geriatric Education Center (GEC) provides interdisciplinary educational programs for practitioners and faculty members.

The Deep South Resource Center for Minority Aging Research provides training for faculty with interests in research related to minority aging and health disparities.

Short-term experiences can be arranged for pre- and postdoctoral students, faculty members, or practitioners who are interested in research, education, or service careers related to aging.
