The geriatric psychiatry fellowship begins with a lecture series designed to ground trainees in the basics of geriatric care and typical syndromes. These multidisciplinary lectures are held twice weekly for the first quarter of the year. Also available are various seminar series focused on long-term care, research methods and ideas, journal clubs and geriatric-specific quality improvement. Psychiatry-specific talks are arranged for the later quarters of the year. Clinical site-specific didactic education occurs on each rotation, including an established electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) lecture series.
Fellows are also encouraged to work with medical students, residents and other medical professionals and are supported in these collaborations.
