Geriatrics/Long Term Care Curriculum
For our Geriatrics rotations, we work closely with two attendings at an elder day care center, Summit Elder Care in Leominster, MA. We work one on one with the attendings seeing patients at the care center. In addition, we rotate to different nursing homes in the area seeing continuity patients. You also have the option of doing home visits with the attendings or nurses. The attendings are great teachers and really keep you involved as part of the medical care team.
Additionally, residents see patients at the Highlands, which is a nursing home in the Burbank campus. Each resident is assigned two long-term care patients. The residents longitudinally follow up with their patients and every 60 days they do their recertification. These visits are supervised by Dr. Venkat.
