Education

The population of people 60 years of age and older is the fastest growing age group in our world today. Almost half of the present population of the United States is expected to live at least to 80 years. Our mission is to train both the present and future leaders of medicine with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to meet this demographic challenge.

Emory's educational programs in Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology are as exciting and varied as our faculty. Our programs reach and engage students, house officers, fellows, faculty and our community. Whether in homes or hospitals, clinics or nursing homes, hospice or sub-acute care, our skilled faculty of geriatricians can offer you an exciting education experience practicing in the full continuum of care. We collaborate across the region to promote training in the care of older adults through the Atlanta Regional Geriatric Education Center and through collaborations with the Atlanta Region Area Agency on Aging.
