Introduction to Geriatrics
The Yale Program in Geriatrics endeavors to improve the quality of life and independence of older persons through a combination of research, interventions to improve function, clinical initiatives, and teaching activities.
The research efforts at Yale are focused in the Program on Aging. This program is a combination of multidisciplinary research, support for the training of young investigators, and collaborative relationships with individuals and agencies in surrounding communities. Over forty investigators from departments throughout Yale and more than fifty field, data management, and analytic staff are involved in more than forty research projects.
