About the American Geriatrics Society- UNC-CH Student Chapter

The mission of the American Geriatrics Society - UNC-CH Student Chapter is to interest physicians-in-training in the field of geriatrics, to enhance the visibility of geriatric medicine at the UNC School of Medicine, and to provide educational programs on geriatric medicine. The chapter aims to educate all medical students in relevant aspects of aging, especially those who do not specifically plan to enter the field of geriatrics. For those students specifically interested in geriatrics, the chapter seeks to develop leadership skills in geriatric medicine by sponsoring interdisciplinary programs, encouraging and funding research participation, and creating geriatric-related community service opportunities.

We encourage you to contact us with your questions or interest!
