About the Program:
This program will use and build upon the competencies achieved in a post-graduate year one residency to promote the development of proficient, independent clinicians with an expertise in geriatrics pharmacotherapy. Upon completion of the program, graduates will possess the knowledge and skills to function as independent practitioners and members of a multidisciplinary team to provide patient-centered care for geriatric patients. The additional focus of academia is designed to prepare graduates to become effective educators of pharmacotherapeutic topics in the practice area of geriatrics in the clinical and academic setting.
