Our well-rounded and rewarding training program provides a stipend for the candidate to pursue a funded career development award.

Our Advanced Fellowship in Geriatrics offers post-specialty education to foster the development of leadership in health care issues for the elderly and advance scholarly pursuits that will benefit the care of elderly Veterans and all older Americans. The VAMHCS GRECC provides a supportive training environment with diverse research experiences in lifestyle modification (exercise, nutrition) in healthy aging and disability conditions in the elderly, mechanistic metabolic research, dementia clinical care and education, rehabilitation for cancer survivors, neurologic disorders, chronic kidney disease, peripheral artery disease, and adults with mobility limitations at risk for falls.

Our 2 most recent postdoctoral associated health fellows received Career Development Awards from the VA Office of Research and Development.
