Welcome to the Division of Geriatrics

Ranked in Geriatrics by US News and World ReportThe UC San Diego Division of Geriatrics is dedicated to promoting healthy aging through patient care, medical education, and research. As your body ages, your health care needs change. It's important to work with a physician who has special training in keeping older adults healthy. However, Geriatric medicine is not just for the frail and elderly. In fact, our doctors specialize in helping active "young seniors" transition gracefully into their 60s and keeping you healthy throughout your senior years.
