The Aging and Dementia Fellowship provides an integrated training program for postgraduate trainees in neurology, psychiatry, geriatric medicine, and neuropsychology who are planning combined clinical and research careers in age-related disorders and dementia. This is a one- to two-year program with two postdoctoral fellow positions available per year. Successful candidates will become part of a large, multidisciplinary diagnostic, treatment, and research center, and will have ample opportunities for collaborations. The primary strengths and focus for fellowship research training include the areas of epidemiology and public health, cognitive neuroscience, and neuropathology and laboratory research. The aims are: 1) to provide the fellow with postdoctoral training in the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, 2) to provide the fellow with a strong working knowledge of clinical trial design and management as well as translational research in aging and dementia, and 3) to provide the fellow with opportunities for independent research and collaboration with basic science colleagues in preparation for a clinical research career in dementia and aging.


Successful completion of:

1.  An ACGME-accredited neurology residency, psychiatry residency, or geriatric medicine fellowship; or

2.  Ph.D. from an APA-approved clinical psychology graduate program and Internship with specialty training in neuropsychology
