Elder Care (Geriatrics)
The Montefiore-Einstein GeriEd Program is a geriatrics training program that improves physician's skills and knowledge of geriatric medicine, with a special focus on older adults with complex medical and neurologic disease such as dementia, falls and delirium. The GeriEd program develops and enhances the medical school curriculum in geriatrics and provides activities to stimulate medical students' interest in geriatrics. The learners include internists, family physicians, hospitalists, and emergency medicine physicians, as well as residents and medical students.
In 2006, the Division of Geriatrics was selected by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation to receive a four-year, $1.9 million training grant, enabling the Division to create a comprehensive program that impacts geriatric education for both primary care physicians and medical trainees. The Donald W. Reynolds Foundation is a national philanthropic organization founded in 1954 by the late media entrepreneur for whom it is named. Headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, it is one of the largest private foundations in the United States.
