Welcome to the Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship at Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin. This one-year clinical fellowship in geriatric psychiatry offers a rich combination of continuity and month-long experiences designed to provide psychiatrists with expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders in late life with a focus on person-centered, multidisciplinary care.
The program’s diverse faculty all have clinical and research expertise in neuropsychiatric disorders of later life, with specialties ranging from geriatric psychiatry to neurology to hospice and palliative care medicine. Upon successful completion of the fellowship, fellows will be qualified to take the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology examination for certification in the subspecialty of geriatric psychiatry.
The Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship is affiliated with the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. Learn more about the fellowship in a welcome letter from program director Erica C. Garcia-Pittman, M.D., FAPA
