Geriatrics is a key component of the mission of the College of Medicine. FSU's medical school is one of only a handful nationwide to dedicate an entire department to geriatrics, and to integrate geriatrics throughout the four-year curriculum. It is one of a few that requires students to complete a full rotation in geriatrics.
The department provides education in geriatrics and geriatric principles to medical students, residents, and practicing physicians. In addition, through its outreach programs and collaboration, the department has been heavily involved in training for many other health-care disciplines.
FSU College of Medicine's Grand Rounds recently welcomed guest speaker Dr. Joanne Lynn.
