Yale Geriatrics

Yale Geriatrics is devoted to the health and health care of older adults.  We strive to ensure that all older adults, regardless of where they reside, receive care that is informed by cutting-edge discoveries in aging and provided by professionals who are expert in geriatric principles.

We are home to one of the largest and most productive aging research programs in the world, and are committed to training leaders in education, health care improvement, and clinical investigation.  A key principle underscores all our work.  Older adults differ widely in their health conditions, life contexts, and priorities.  We believe that embracing and understanding this heterogeneity is essential to ensuring that our patients receive high-quality care.
