Geriatrics

Learn more about
the geriatrics department
and its fellowship.

The program provides a special emphasis on geriatric medicine given the changing demographics of our society and its impact on internal medicine. A block rotation is dedicated to this in the second year. While supervised by fellowship trained, board certified geriatricians, the resident gains experience managing complex elderly patients in the full spectrum of clinical settings including assisted living, nursing home, home care, comprehensive geriatric assessment, office-based practice, and inpatient consultation. Abington also maintains a one-year clinical fellowship program in geriatrics, the only such program in Chester, Montgomery and Bucks counties accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
