Geriatrics Pathway

DOM_-_R3

We are currently offering a a combined, four-year, geriatrics/internal medicine track with an immersive geriatric experience that cuts through the entire training (as opposed to one month exposure during an intern year). This track includes standard internal medicine rotations with a focus on geriatrics and specific inpatient and outpatient geriatric rotations. While the schedule of this pathway is similar to categorical, residents in this track get exposed to geriatrics clinic, Hanna House and ACE unit, so that they can get the necessary experience with older adults and their medical conditions throughout their residency. In this track residents develop a geriatrics research project that they carry out through their residency training and into fellowship. At the conclusion of four years, residents would be eligible to sit for both the Internal Medicine and Geriatrics Boards.
