The University of Wisconsin/Madison VA Hospital Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship Program (GPFP) began in 1980, making it one of the oldest in the country. Co-sponsored by the Departments of Psychiatry and Medicine, it is committed to preparing physicians to meet the challenges of providing care to elderly patients with complex, interacting psychiatric, medical and social problems. This has been achieved through an integrated program where geriatric psychiatry fellows and geriatric medicine fellows work closely with each other and with interdisciplinary teams, under the clinical supervision of geriatric psychiatry and geriatric medicine faculty members, who themselves work and teach in tandem. The GPFP is a key component of the Geriatric Research, Education and Clinical Center (GRECC) based at the Madison VA Hospital.

The one-year training program provides fellows with opportunities to provide direct care and consultations for patients in a number of different clinical settings, including outpatient sites such as the Mental Health Clinic and Geriatric Evaluation and Management clinics at the Madison VA Hospital, along with long-term care facility consultation at the Badger Prairie Health Care Center, and inpatient geriatric psychiatry acute services at Mendota mental health Institute. The fellow also trains at the world-renowned Dane County Mental Health Center’s Mobile Outreach to Seniors Team for geropsychiatry home-based care. The fellow also develops their professional identity as a geriatric psychiatrist by serving as junior attending staffing resident and medical student cases and developing their skills as clinical educators both within the Madison VA and University of Wisconsin sites and in the community.
