Geriatrics

The geriatric rotation at AKFMR is longitudinal, with a one month geriatric focus month during the PGY-3 year. Throughout residency, residents see geriatric patients in the family medicine clinic and on the family medicine inpatient service, as well as have core didactic lectures. PGY-2 and PGY-3 residents are assigned continuity nursing home patients and participate in rounds monthly with a faculty. In addition, residents participate in the geriatric/palliative care clinic, interdisciplinary rounds, and work closely with the palliative care department.
