Primary + Specialist Care    

Geriatricians are board certified in internal or family medicine, bringing a foundation of primary care expertise to their specialist’s knowledge of aging health issues. A Geriatrician spends additional time training (from 1 to 3 years) as a Geriatric Medicine Fellow to pass exams for board certification in Geriatrics.

The Geriatrics Specialty Clinic’s medical team begins with our core physicians, but also includes a Geriatrics pharmacist and social worker, as well as a neurologist and psychiatrist.

Our physicians are members of the UNC School of Medicine Faculty. They train medical students and Geriatric Medicine Fellows in Chapel Hill and consult with providers throughout the state. Their networks of multidisciplinary experts continuously broaden their knowledge of new research, effective treatments, and standards of care that are relevant to an aging population.
