Welcome to the Section of Geriatric Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine! The section was created in 2015 to support a growing group of Stanford faculty and staff whose clinical, educational, and research interests focus on care of older adults.  Each of our physicians, nurses, social workers, and support staff cares deeply about the well-being of patients and families navigating the unique joys and challenges of older adulthood. 

Faculty and staff in the Section of Geriatric Medicine provide clinical care at Stanford Health Care, the Palo Alto VA Health Care System, local skilled nursing facilities, and community clinics.  Our section's faculty also train Stanford and visiting geriatric medicine physician fellows, internal medicine residents, family medicine residents, medical students, physicians' assistant students, nurse practitioner students, and allied health providers in the art and science of caring for older adult patients.  In addition, our faculty conduct and support research projects that seek to improve the care of older adults in all settings, from home to intensive care units.  

Please feel free to reach out to any of us with questions about our clinical, educational, and research programs, we look forward to talking with you!
