Application Process

The top-ranked geriatric medicine fellowship (subspecialty residency) program at Saint Louis University provides comprehensive exposure to the full range of practice settings and clinical scenarios seen in older adults, with an emphasis on clinical medicine and quality improvement.

Eligibility Criteria

Qualified applicants to the geriatric medicine fellowship program have successfully completed medical school and a residency in internal medicine, family medicine or combined internal medicine-pediatrics from an ACGME-accredited program.

Candidates must be board eligible/board certified by American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) and/or American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM). The division currently supports J-1 Visas and may support H-1B Visas on an individual basis.

Foreign medical graduates who have completed a non-ACGME approved internal medicine or family medicine program and are interested in a geriatric medicine fellowship should contact our division for eligibility determination.


Applications must be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Our program participates in the National Resident Matching Program.

Interview Day

Select applicants are interviewed by the program director and three to four faculty from the division. You will also have the opportunity to sit informally for lunch in the division, go on a tour of the campus and visit Life Care Center of St. Louis.
