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.

Stanford Resident Inpatient Elective: This elective allows second and third-year Internal Medicine residents to rotate with the Inpatient Geriatrics Consult and Home-Based Primary Care services. 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. 

Away Elective: Stanford Medicine accepts visiting residents from ACGME-accredited programs in the United States and Canada. If you are interested in this four-week elective rotation at Stanford, please visit the GME website and review the eligibility and application guidelines here. Please contact Victoeia Mesquita for more information.
