Training at a Glance

Our fellows gain clinical experience by staffing a number of different care settings, including the Geriatric Psychiatry Inpatient Unit, Geriatric Psychiatry Outpatient Clinic, nursing homes in Iowa City area, and several specialty areas (palliative care, neurology, geriatric medicine, consultation-liaison psychiatry, rehabilitation medicine).

We offer two rotation options as detailed below. The first allows fellows to optimize their time on the Geriatric Psychiatry Inpatient Unit, while the second offers additional elective time.

As this is a small program, details of the clinical experience can be modified to meet the fellow's needs and interests. Examples include additional time with palliative care, medical psychiatry, or research.
