The MPST Foundation Churchill Fellowship to establish and sustain Australia's first Geriatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship featured image


Geriatric Emergency Medicine (GEM) is developing internationally as a sub speciality of Emergency Medicine. GEM Fellowships are an important way to support sub-specialisation and develop EM leaders who can drive quality improvement in acute and emergency care for older people. A central pillar towards improving healthcare outcomes is through excellent education experiences. Programs such as medical Fellowships, that provide both individual and wider education strategies as part of their curriculum are important and attractive as they are both sustainable and build the capacity of individuals and systems.


The aim of this report is to share my learnings and experiences gained as part of my Churchill Fellowship, through:

  • Describing different GEM Fellowships that I visited;
  • Providing tips that were shared with me during my site visits and interviews for developing a GEM Fellowship program;
  • Giving examples of, and perspective on, some of the initiatives happening across the globe aimed at improving the care of older people requiring acute care.

Please download my report above to read my full list of recommendations.
