Welcome from the Program Director

The mission of the Geriatric Medicine fellowship program at Aventura Hospital and Medical Center is to provide interprofessional training, mentorship, and promote scholarly activities to enable graduates to practice competently and independently in the acute, post-acute and ambulatory setting.

The aim of the program is to supervise and encourage independent practice in affiliated fields such as long-term care, inpatient care, ambulatory geriatrics, geriatric psychiatry, and rehabilitation for a diverse and sociomedically vulnerable population in SE Florida. Graduates will be knowledgeable in regulatory and practice issues, and will be given teaching opportunities for a health professions audience, as well as the opportunity to give didactic presentations at the local, state, and national levels.
