Resident Rotations in Geriatric Medicine

Elective Information

In partnership with the Stanford Internal Medicine Residency Program, we offer Geriatric Medicine required and elective rotations designed to prepare physicians for optimal care of older patients. The resident will have an opportunity to assess and treat a diverse population of older adults, from those who are healthy and active to those who are frail and dependent.

Internal Medicine Rotation in Geriatric Medicine: This two week rotation introduces internal Medicine interns to the basics of Geriatric Medicine theory and practice in primary care clinic, skilled nursing facility, and inpatient settings. - Contact Philip Choe

Stanford Resident Inpatient Elective: This elective allows second and third-year Internal Medicine residents to rotate with the Inpatient Geriatrics Consult service. The rotation is designed to teach residents to evaluate and manage common geriatric syndromes in hospitalized elders including delirium, dementia, falls, frailty, and hospital-associated disability.  - Contact Meera Sheffrin
