Education and Training

…Training our health professionals today to help shape tomorrow…

The UC San Diego Division of Geriatrics has a variety of training programs focused on not only educating the next generation of doctors, but also the current and future health care work force, including other practicing physicians, nurses, and social workers.

Our programs include a long-standing ACGME-accredited Geriatrics Fellowship Program, resident education, and elective rotations for medical students at various levels in their training, in addition to multiple didactic activities available to trainees and faculty, such as our geriatrics grand rounds, seminars, case conferences, and journal club. UC San Diego also also held Clinical Geriatrics Interprofessional Symposiums, nursing wokshops and community presentations on a periodic basis.

We have established partnerships with several local community organizations to expand our training efforts. We are involved with two local Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Programs funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: 1) The San Diego GWEP Collaborative with our own Dr. Diane Chau serving as the PI; and 2) The San Diego/Imperial Geriatric Education Center (SDIGEC) spearheaded by San Diego State University.
