All of our physicians are board-certified in internal medicine and most have additional qualifications in geriatrics. Most of our nurses are clinical nurse specialists or nurse practitioners with board certification in the field of geriatric nursing. Our social services are managed by a licensed geriatrics social worker.

Our clinicians are leaders in their field, recognized regionally and nationally for their excellence in geriatric care and teaching. As full-time staff members at Boston Medical Center and faculty members at the Boston University School of Medicine, they provide patient care and train doctors and other clinicians who wish to specialize in geriatrics. They serve on professional committees, community boards, deliver presentations and lectures locally and nationally and publish in distinguished academic journals. As researchers, our physicians lead investigations in many areas of geriatrics research, such as successful aging and exceptional longevity, breast cancer care in older women, innovations in geriatrics clinical care delivery to vulnerable elders and basic mechanisms of aging. Our program has been designated and funded as a Center of Excellence in Geriatrics by the John A. Hartford Foundation of New York.
