Educational Opportunities in Geriatric Medicine

The Division of Geriatric Medicine offers a variety of educational opportunities for healthcare professionals, including:

  • Elective rotations for medical students, ANP, PA and psychology students. The Division of Geriatric Medicine offers elective rotations to medical students — as well as other clinicians such as APN, PA and psychology students — allowing them to learn in an interdisciplinary environment.
  • Geriatrics education and training for internal medicine residents. To address the growing shortage of geriatric care providers and improve the future of geriatric care, we offer geriatric medicine as part of residency training. The Division of Geriatric Medicine provides one-month rotations to internal medicine residents from New Jersey Medical School/Rutgers. The division also offers geriatrics electives for residents at other institutions when requested.
