Geriatrics Rotations

Each year, interns as well as second and third year residents compete three weeks on the Geriatrics Inpatient Service, under the supervision of one of the Section of Geriatrics attending physicians. Residents and interns see patients in the clinical setting as well as in the home and in nursing homes. Primary care interns also participate in a specially designed outpatient rotation that includes faculty mentorship, home visits and participation in interdisciplinary primary care.

Geriatrics Ambulatory Rotation Schedule

Throughout the three weeks spent in Geriatrics, the trainees work in a variety of settings. The following is an example of a week during this rotation. In addition to these activities, the residents are given supplemental readings on topics such as fall prevention and routine screening methods in older adults to supplement the clinical experiences.
