Message from the Program Director

Welcome to the Stanford/VA Palo Alto Geriatric Medicine Fellowship! Our program is designed to prepare you for excellence in clinical care, teaching, and critical thinking, as well as to serve as a launching point for your future career path toward a leadership role in geriatric medicine.

We take pride in having dedicated faculty members who create a supportive educational environment for our fellows to thrive in and help foster a successful work-life balance. Our interdisciplinary clinical experiences are education driven and our multi-site training exposes our fellows to diverse patient populations and care delivery systems.  We have a strong outpatient presence in the Bay Area and we are continually expanding our inpatient services, including our recent Stanford Program for Acute Care Elders (SPACE) initiative. In addition, our comprehensive curriculum and weekly board review sessions have resulted in a 100% geriatrics board pass rate.

So take a moment to review the content of this webpage and please don’t hesitate to contact me directly if you have any questions about our program.

We are delighted to have you as a future geriatric colleague and look forward to working together with you in the upcoming year!


Philip Choe, DO

Stanford Geriatric Medicine Fellowship Program Director
