Geriatrics Rotation – Students and Residents

Unthsc Stock 035


This four-week clinical experience aims to provide students and residents with a foundation for competent and compassionate care of older adults. This includes attitudes, knowledge, and skills required to care for older adults in both outpatient and long term care settings. The goal is to expose trainees to a variety of experiences including ambulatory practice, nursing facilities, assisted living centers, home visits, palliative care, and hospice. Residents will gain knowledge through self-study, case reviews, clinical case discussions, didactic session, and working in different sites of care.
