Geriatrics, Gerontology and Palliative Medicine

We believe that successful aging is about enjoying a full life. Our division offers a continuum of care for older adults focusing on function and independence. 

We take a whole person wellness approach to patient care – from outpatient through rehabilitation, nursing home and home care. Our faculty is committed to education, providing training for medical students, residents and fellows. And we continue to advance the way our aging population is cared for through research ranging from basic science to clinical trials.
