With our rapidly aging society, there is a growing question around what it means to be geriatric and what will happen to each of us when we reach that stage in our lives. Dr. Michael Harper has had a long and satisfying career in the field of geriatric medicine and, in this episode, brings his expertise and knowledge to the discussion. Unlike a lot of other specialities, in many medical schools, there is no specific geriatric training, other than end of life care, It is also a field of medicine that has many fellowship training spots unfulfilled each year. Therese Markow and Dr. Harper discuss why this may be, as well as the growing needs of geratric patients.
"We need to increase our exposure of young people, before medical school, to older adults." — Dr. Michael Harper
