New Jersey Institute for Successful Aging

Undergraduate Geriatrics Education

Our students are exposed to geriatrics throughout their medical school education through our partnership with nationally-recognized Rowan-Virtua School of Osteopathic Medicine (Rowan-Virtua SOM). Our students participate in a course on End of Life Care during pre-clerkship years, as well as a dedicated, four-week Geriatrics course. During clerkship, we offer a four-week clinical rotation and our students experience caring for geriatric patients in settings across the continuum of care: ambulatory clinic, acute care, long-term care, Program of All-inclusive Care of the Elderly (PACE), and hospice.

More information on geriatrics at Rowan-Virtua SOM is available in our curriculum section.

Opportunities to experience geriatrics during residency is available through the following specializations:
  • Family Medicine
  • General Psychiatry
