Residency & Fellowship Special Interest Group

RF SIG Leadership

The Residency and Fellowship SIG seeks to foster the development and growth of geriatric residency and fellowship programs. The R/F SIG will allow greater participation among ALL parties interested in residency/fellowship education; including those engaged in existing programs (both faculty and participants) and those interested in developing new programs. Furthermore, students and others interested in becoming a resident should become members of the R/F SIG for networking purposes. The R/F SIG will allow for increased member participation and potentially have a much greater impact on the development of new and larger programs. There are many opportunities for participation, so please consider getting involved! To participate or learn more about current SIG activities and projects, contact the SIG chair.
