Education is vital! Training of physicians and health-care specialists in geriatrics is the key to providing excellent innovative and best health care to our seniors. Focus on education is a major goal for the Center for Healthy Aging; working to bring together resources in geriatric training and education.
The Center for Healthy Aging, along with our VA partners at the Geriatric Research, Education, and Clinical Center (GRECC) strive to support initiatives aimed at implementing, evaluating and disseminating innovative aging-related curriculum and education programs for geriatrics/gerontology learners from various disciplines. Many of these educational initiatives will spring from the research and clinical activities of the two centers. This partnership will also look to develop unique educational opportunities promoting the development of scholars and junior faculty interested in pursuing a career in clinical and translational research programs.
