Center on Aging Geriatric Fellowship

Policy 1030.00

Policy Statement

The focus of this one-year fellowship is to participate in the ongoing development and implementation of Support and Services at Home (SASH). SASH is a key component of Vermont’s health care reform initiative – the Blueprint for Health – a medical home model. SASH provides community-based practice support through one streamlined collaboration of community providers, all serving on the SASH team. SASH provides care coordination, transitions planning and self-management education to Medicare eligible individuals living in the community. The fellowship comes with a stipend.

For one year prior to beginning Advanced Integration, fellows are exposed to an enriching first-hand experience in gerontology. The final level of medical studies is deferred, while the student is on a leave of absence, and the fellow joins the next graduating class. Former fellows have found the experience very rewarding.

Please contact the Director of the Center on Aging if you have interest.
