The University of Arizona Division of Geriatrics, General Internal Medicine and Palliative Medicine provides comprehensive care for adults of all ages. Our faculty applies an interdisciplinary approach to meet the varying needs of our patients, drawing upon the different strengths of our medical and surgical specialty colleagues. Our faculty provides the best of care when and where our patients and their families need it — in the acute care setting, in our ambulatory general internal medicine, geriatric or palliative medicine clinics, or in the home and community. Our faculty are actively involved in medical education, and have received numerous teaching awards. We are also researchers, contributing to the science of healthy lives and resilient aging.
