Hackensack University Medical Center offers world-class geriatric training to residents, fellows and students.
Our students are central to the mission of the Division of Geriatrics and receive valuable education and guidance from some of the nation’s leading geriatric specialists.
We emphasize an interdisciplinary team approach and provide care at a variety of sites, including acute care and long-term care facilities, assisted living, rehabilitation facilities and hospice. Our teaching program includes a robust research component to prepare our students to advance within geriatric medicine and become leaders in the field. We have started an education consortium with all geriatrics fellowship programs in New Jersey, which is a unique educational model.
Academic, fellowship, resident and student programs are central to the mission of the geriatric initiative at Hackensack.
