Geriatrics Fellowship Overview

Under the leadership of the Division Chief, Dr. Suzanne Fields, and Geriatric Fellowship Program Director, Dr. Catherine Nicastri, Stony Brook University provides Geriatric fellows with a unique geriatric educational experience through a one year accredited Geriatric Fellowship program. Upon successful completion of the first year, a fellow will have acquired the necessary knowledge to satisfy the ACGME criteria to take the ABIM Certificate of Added Qualifications in Geriatrics. Fellows have the option to complete a second year of Fellowship. Those fellows interested in pursuing careers in academic medicine may dedicate this year focusing on improving teaching skills, developing their clinic and nursing home practice further and mastering the practice based improvement competency by further developing and learning to teach evidence based medicine skills.
