The work of the Multidisciplinary Center on Aging has been successful because of the professional expertise of the geriatric-trained clinicians who work with patients, community members and campus health professional schools to educate about the importance of geriatric work in our aging communities. The Division of Geriatrics, at CU Anschutz Medical Campus offers one of the top geriatric fellowship opportunities in the country. Students have direct learning experiences in geriatric settings that include the University of Colorado Hospital (UCH), Denver VA Medical Center, home-based primary care (VA), specialty primary care (UCH and VA) and long-term care facilities. Mentoring of the Geriatric Fellows is a top priority for the Medical Director, Dr. Bob Schwartz, and Fellowship Program Director, Janna Hardland, with a clinician team, to ensure that fellows are properly trained, supported and encouraged to enter a rewarding medical career in geriatrics.
Health care jobs specializing in geriatrics will be one of the fastest growing segments of health care delivery the US has ever faced. At CU Anschutz Medical Campus’ Division of Geriatrics, a variety of clinical and educational opportunities are available to train practitioners in geriatrics that hold positions in nursing, pharmacy, psychology, social work, audiology, physical therapy, and occupational therapy. Also, one-year specialized programs are available specifically for Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants interested in pursuing a geriatrics specialization.
Ongoing Education for all clinical disciplines is important to best serve older adults patients. We invite all clinicians from the campus and community to participate in geriatric professional development. 2020 Geriatric Grand Rounds are hosted on Thursdays, 7:30am-8:30am on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus, Academic Office One Building, room 7000 (7th Floor).
