Student Elective Rotation

PCOM's geriatric rotation is an elective rotation (two or four weeks) in which students learn to care for frail, elderly patients in various settings.


Time will be spent in the geriatric outpatient office at PCOM as well as nursing homes and hospitals in the Philadelphia area. Students receive exposure to palliative care including inpatient hospice care and palliative care consultations. They will also have the opportunity to observe interdisciplinary team meetings in the long-term care setting as well as for hospice patients. Students have the option to participate in home care if interested.
