Geriatricians are needed to further improve the health care of elderly Americans. The first formalized geriatric residency program in the United States was developed at the Mount Sinai City Hospital Center in New York, and this has produced a second program at the Jewish Institute for Geriatric Care at Long Island Jewish-Hillside Medical Center, New Hyde Park, New York. The goals of this training are to develop special clinical skills to deal with the medical and psychosocial problems of the elderly, and to achieve the ability to develop health care systems for the elderly. Emphasis is on a multileveled system, including home, outpatient, acute hospital, convalescent unit, and long-term institution care. The training period is 12 to 24 months, after an initial 24 to 36 months of standard internal medicine, thus fulfilling the requirements for board eligibility in internal medicine.
