Welcome to the Division of Geriatric Medicine
The mission of the Division of Geriatric Medicine is to be at the forefront of geriatric care. We provide comprehensive, patient-centered clinical care and conduct cutting-edge research while training the next generation of geriatricians.
Through our Senior’s Clinic at University of Colorado Hospital, we treat patients age 75 and older who have multiple conditions. We also care for aging veterans through our partnership with the Veterans Administration Medical Center.
Our researchers are shedding light on interventions that improve how we care for aging patients, including preventing disease, maintaining functional independence, and improving how we care for nursing home residents.
Medical students, residents, and fellows receive training through the Division of Geriatrics. We also provide interdisciplinary, team-based training. Our students benefit from working in a variety of care settings, including inpatient, outpatient and community-based settings.
Thanks for learning more about the excellent work of our division.
