The mini-fellowship in Graduate Medical Education in Geriatrics focuses on assisting clinician educators in developing curricula in geriatrics for residents and fellows. The program offers attendees an opportunity to develop knowledge and skills in GME curriculum design while working on a specific educational program plan to implement at their home institution. Participants meet with expert faculty in an educational environment that promotes their growth as educators and enhances their role as education leaders and scholars. 


The program offers workshops on curriculum development, teaching strategies, program and learner evaluation, and educational scholarship. During their week at Duke, program faculty also provide individual mentoring for attendees to identify appropriate content and resources for their curriculum project and develop strategies for its implementation and evaluation. This mentoring continues via electronic contact in the year following the mini-fellowship and opportunities exist for institutional site visits and workshops at national meetings.

Faculty for the mini-fellowship will include experts in geriatrics, education, internal medicine, and family medicine.

Featured topics and themes include:

  • Workshops on teaching strategies, curriculum development, learner assessment, program evaluation, and educational scholarship
  • Working group sessions focused on identifying program specific needs for teaching residents and fellows about care of older adults and strategies for curriculum implementation
