It is estimated that more than 12 percent of the U.S. population is now over the age of 65. The need is great for more physicians who can care for this burgeoning elderly population. For more than 25 years, the geriatric division has been playing a key role in teaching the principles and practice of geriatric medicine to residents and medical students of New York Medical College at Westchester Medical Center. Additionally, geriatric faculty has contributed numerous papers and books related to aging and age prevalent illnesses and have made presentations before national geriatric conferences and scientific meetings.
