Training Physicians in Geriatrics

The population of older persons in the Americas is growing rapidly, but the knowledge and skills to properly diagnosis and treat this population are not well known.

PAHEF, in partnership with PAHO/WHO and a grant from the Merck Institute on Aging and Health, has provided support for a growing network of universities in Latin America that are creating programs in gerontology to provide a cadre of trained physicians in geriatrics.
