Education and Training

The Division of Aging does not directly administer any fellowships. However, all eight of the fellows in the Harvard Fellowship in Geriatric Medicine rotate through the division for six weeks each year. In addition, those fellows who participate in the Harvard Medical School Fellowship in General Medicine and Primary Care and are based at the VA Boston Healthcare System receive their Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s appointments through the Division of Aging.
