The mission of the Geriatric Medicine Services within the Section of General Internal Medicine and Geriatrics is to prepare the next generation of geriatricians and to enhance the geriatrics credentials of current providers; to provide high quality care for the elderly and to encourage excellence in medical practice, learning, and inquiry.  This is achieved through our geriatrics clerkship and post-graduate programs and through continuing education targeting the broader healthcare community.  We provide up-to-date services to our patients in the hospital, nursing home, home care, hospice settings and through our community health clinics.  Our mission is strengthened by the cutting edge basic and clinical research carried out in conjunction with the Tulane Center for Aging.


  • Promote and provide high quality care within a comprehensive scope of service for the elderly population

  • Educate, expose, and encourage the clinical knowledge levels of all providers involved in the care of elderly patients

  • Be recognized as an expert and resource for academic and community partners/collaborators in geriatric medicine, as well as in hospice/palliative care

  • Support the collaboration with other academic/community disciplines in education, interdisciplinary research, and clinical care delivery
