Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship

Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship Program Director
Welcome From the Program Director
Thank you for visiting the webpage for the OHSU Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship. If you are considering a career in geriatric psychiatry, I am happy to say you have come to the right place! Our fellowship program has been training psychiatrists in the field of geriatric psychiatry for over 30 years. Training in this rewarding subspecialty prepares psychiatrists to be at the intersection of psychiatry and other medical specialties. At the heart of our fellowship program is our mission to train fellows to deliver high quality care to the rapidly growing population of older adults; to collaborate effectively with other medical specialists; and to develop the skills and knowledge needed to shape healthcare policy and to be at the forefront of medical education and clinical service delivery. The strengths of our program include interdisciplinary training with geriatric medicine and neurology; engaged and highly skilled faculty; and the wide variety of clinical experiences including rotations in inpatient, outpatient, and longterm care settings. We have adapted to the changing field of medicine caused by SARS-CoV-2 and have included telepsychiatry clinic as part of the training experience.
I am a graduate of the OHSU Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship.This fellowship program strengthened my skills as a general adult psychiatrist while shaping and developing my skills as a geriatric psychiatrist. I look back at my fellowship as one of the most valuable experiences I had on the long journey it took to being ready for independent practice. I hope you give strong consideration to fellowship training in geriatric psychiatry, and look forward to hearing from you.
