Geriatrics Center


Welcome to the Geriatrics Center!

Established in 1987 by the Regents of the University of Michigan, the Center is dedicated to providing outstanding educational opportunities, advancing research on the healthcare issues of older adults and providing exemplary multidisciplinary care and services for the older population.

The Geriatrics Center’s multi-disciplinary faculty of nearly 300 physicians and scientists from 14 U-M schools and institutes, including 29 departments in the Medical School, conduct $79 million in nationally-sponsored research each year. We’re ranked among the top programs in the country for both academic geriatrics programs and hospital care for older adults by U.S News and World Report.

The geriatric population is growing and the University of Michigan Geriatrics Center has responded by becoming a national leader in this evolving field.
