MDC7140 is a four-week required geriatrics rotation for all 4th-year medical students at the University of Florida. Our aim is to teach the nuances of geriatric medicine, palliative care, and rehabilitation medicine to our UF MD students, preparing them to become competent and compassionate providers to our aging population.
The geriatric fellowship is administered by the University of Florida and the Gainesville VA Medical Center. Each year four geriatric fellows are accepted. A core curriculum provides basic knowledge of biological and psychological aspects of aging.
