In order to be eligible for appointment as a fellow, a candidate must have graduated from an LCME-accredited medical school in the US or Canada or from an AOA-accredited college of osteopathic medicine in the US. Candidates who graduated from a medical school outside of the US or Canada may be eligible – please refer to the FAQs regarding international medical school graduates.
Candidates must also have successfully completed a three-year ACGME-accredited internal medicine (IM) or family medicine (FM) residency, or RCPSC-accredited internal medicine residency or CFPC-accredited family medicine residency in Canada prior to appointment. Candidates from non-ACGME-accredited IM or FM residencies may be considered if they have successfully passed steps 1, 2, and (if eligible) 3 of the USMLE and are exceptionally qualified. Please refer to the FAQs regarding non-ACGME-accredited residency applicants.
MDFMR’s Geriatric Medicine Fellowship participates in the National Resident Matching Program’s match process. Applications should be submitted through ERAS. We do consider nontraditional applicants – candidates who are interested in our program without applying through ERAS should contact the fellowship’s program coordinator for information about the process.
