West Virginia has the second largest senior population (age 65 and older) in the country. The goal of our ACGME accredited Geriatrics Fellowship is to train internists and family practitioners for careers in clinical practice, teaching, administration, and research consistent with the missions of WVU Healthcare and Charleston Area Medical Center.
Geriatric Fellows take advantage of active research, teaching programs, and comprehensive library facilities while rotating among all clinical components and affiliates of the CAMC/WVU system.
CAMC includes Memorial Hospital in Kanawha City, General Hospital in downtown Charleston, Womens & Childrens Hospital, and CHERI, the CAMC Health and Research Institute.
WVU's Robert C. Byrd Health Sciences Center, Charleston Division, serves as a fully integrated academic medical center with faculty and medical staff from the WVU Physicians of Charleston and CAMC. It is also home to West Virginia's Geriatric Education Center (WVGEC), providing a wide range of interdisciplinary training opportunities
We are also affiliated with Eastbrook of Charleston Nursing Home, Kanawha Hospice Care, and Edgewood Summit, the premier Independent Living and Residential Care Center for seniors in Charleston, all just a few miles from the CAMC/WVU campus.
Dr. Todd H. Goldberg, M.D., MHA, CMD, FACP, Associate Professor, Director of Geriatrics, and past president, WV Geriatrics Society, has led the program since it began in 2008 and was recently joined by Dr. Raghavendra Mulinti, MBBS, MD, Assistant Professor. Several additional board-certified faculty physicians participate in the education of fellows, students, and residents.
The 12-month fellowship curriculum is designed for fellows to experience and explore the spectrum of geriatric medicine through the following rotations:
Acute Hospital Care
Long Term Care
Applicants must complete an accredited residency in Internal Medicine or Family Practice before entering a geriatrics fellowship, and are expected to become Board Certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine or the American Board of Family Practice.
Please fill out our application, send us your Curriculum Vitae, and three letters of recommendation. We look forward to your application via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).
