Botsford News Release
Farmington Hills, Mich. (June 29, 2010)---Botsford Hospital’s Medical Education Department has added a new fellowship-training program in geriatrics and named Annette Carron, D.O., as Program Director.
On July 1, Amish Shah, D.O., a 2010 graduate from Botsford’s Internal Medicine residency will become the first fellow of this new fellowship-training program. In addition to Dr. Carron, trainers for the program will include internists Kenneth Gallmore, D.O., and Michael Haroutunian, D.O.; psychiatrist Theodora Ruza, D.O.; and family physician William Silverstone, D.O.
Botsford Hospital started its Inpatient Geriatric and Palliative Care program in the fall of 2008 to help patients and families with defining goals of care, prognosis and symptom management. The geriatrics program is part of Botsford’s commitment to providing specialty-training opportunities of interest to young physicians.
David Walters, D.O., Botsford’s Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, says, “The fellowship program is an excellent way to keep so many of the outstanding doctors that attend our residency programs. Dr. Shah and future fellows in this program will benefit greatly from Dr. Carron’s years of geriatrics experience.”
