The Geriatrics Program at the University of Hawai‘i John A Burns School of Medicine prepares physicians to care for older people and to promote healthy aging throughout life so that the frailties and disabilities common in older years can be prevented.


The fully accredited Geriatric Medicine Fellowship Program is one of the four largest fellowship programs in the country. More than 80 geriatricians have graduated from the program since its inception, with almost half of them currently practicing in Hawaii and the Pacific Region.
