The Division of Geriatrics provides a continuum of care from outpatient, through rehabilitation, nursing home and home care. With its interprofessional colleagues the Division is dedicated to 'whole person wellness' through the wellness program.

Our faculty teach medical students, residents, and fellows in geriatric medicine. The Division also conducts research in functional and cognitive health and disorders.

The division works closely with Geriatric psychiatry to evaluate and treat cognitive disorders.
