Yale Section of Geriatric Medicine
The mission of the Section of Geriatrics in the Department of Internal Medicine at Yale University School of Medicine is to improve the function, independence, and quality of life of older persons. The Section trains resident physicians, medical students, fellows, and attending physicians in the most effective care of the elderly, promotes innovative multidisciplinary research programs, trains junior investigators to become future leaders, and offers our patients the highest level of clinical care.
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.
