Victoria has a state-wide training program in Geriatric Medicine.
All sites in Victoria accredited for Advanced Training in Geriatric Medicine have combined to form three Training Alliances. The Training Alliances offer comprehensive training across a range of clinical settings. Each has a Director of Training and a senior registrar, known as a Fellow in Geriatric Medicine. They are available to assist you.
Trainees are entitled to 5 hours of training time per week. State-wide training is held on Thursday afternoons, usually every second week. In addition, each Training Alliance has its own program.
