The Geriatric Medicine Fellowship is a one-year fellowship that seeks to train family medicine and/or internal medicine physicians in the various aspects of clinical geriatrics. The goal of this program is to prepare graduates to be able to obtain board certification in geriatric medicine and to be capable of excellent performance in geriatric care as practitioners, educators, administrators or directors of elder care facilities.

We believe the future of medicine begins in our communities. Our goal is to produce outstanding physicians who will meet the growing healthcare needs of our local residents. The purpose of the HCA Healthcare GME program is to develop community-based programs with curriculums that provide fellows with a broad and complete education in their chosen medical field.

Each curriculum is tailored to the individual fellow's specific areas of interest, strengths and academic needs. Our programs are connected to North Florida Regional Healthcare, an organization centered around HCA Florida North Florida Hospital located in beautiful North Central Florida.

This program is designed to offer fellows a rewarding, educational environment where fellows are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the fellows' clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding fellows’ perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values, and ideals.

We are looking forward to showing you all that HCA Florida North Florida Hospital has to offer.
