At the Forefront of Geriatric Care

UChicago Medicine has one of the largest and most comprehensive care programs for older adults in the Midwest. Our physicians are fellowship-trained and board-certified in geriatric medicine. This means they have received years of specific training in the unique health needs of older adults and how to care for them. Our dedicated team also includes advanced practice providers, nurses, social workers, physical therapists, pharmacists, psychiatrists and neurologists, who are also specially trained to work with older adults.

Under our team-based model, all medical care for older adults is coordinated through a primary care geriatrician. Even though patients may see several specialists outside of the geriatrics program, this approach ensures that all members of a patient’s care team are communicating with each other, as well as with the patient’s family.
