Department of Geriatrics

Department mission: To lead the nation in preparing physicians, in all medical disciplines, to provide exemplary care to older adults.

Our medical school is one of only nine 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. Read more About the Department.
