About

Duke's Division of Geriatrics is responsible for clinical services, training, and research in geriatrics and gerontology. The division is integrated with the renowned Duke University Center for the Study of Aging and Human Development.

In addition, we collaborate closely with faculty members from Duke's Departments of Psychiatry and Community and Family Medicine, as well as other divisions of the Department of Medicine.

The Duke Division of Geriatrics includes 28 primary faculty and seven fellows.

We are a pioneer in the establishment of programs to train physician-scientists in geriatric medicine.

Duke is ranked #5 in the country for geriatrics by U.S. News & World Report.

Our research into health and wellness issues common among the elderly — including long-term care and preventive medicine initiatives designed to help elders preserve their health and independence — has advanced geriatrics care worldwide.
