The Geriatric AOC is an elective experience meant to enhance geriatric education with advanced experience in multiple aspects of care of the aging patient. It is completely customizable and all depends on what the learner is interested in seeing/ learning.

One main aspect of this experience is a 4-6 week elective that the resident and faculty will design together. This includes multiple, rotating, experiences that can incorporate, but are not limited to the following:

  • Geriatric psych
  • Geriatric ENT with focus on balance and audiology
  • Palliative care/hospice
  • Nursing home care/administration
  • PT/OT/ST and home safety evaluations
  • Urinary incontinence with pelvic therapy and learning how to fit pessaries
  • Bone health specialty clinic
  • Wounds
Please visit the St. Vincent Geriatrics Fellowship for more information about that opportunity.
