Gray Area - Who Will Treat Aging Boomers?

Suzanne Fields, MD, chief of the division of geriatrics and general internal medicine at Stony Brook University Medical Center in New York, points to research from the Association of Directors of Geriatric Academic Programs.
As of 2009, there were 7,300 geriatricians, a 5.4% decrease from 2000. "That's half the number currently needed," she says. Beyond that, says Fields, there's a declining interest in primary care, which feeds into the geriatric program. "As we have fewer numbers [of medical students] in primary care, we naturally will have fewer entering geriatrics," she notes. Fields has seen a great response at Stony Brook too. "We're trying to make geriatric training in the mainstream of physical training. We've run workshops and retreats to teach junior residents geriatric medicine. We are seeing a lot of success with this model," she says. Investing in the Future Consider it insurance. "Even if it doesn't produce more geriatricians, we will produce doctors who have some skill in caring for the elderly," says Fields about the exposure to geriatrics training. Fields agrees. "Surveys show that geriatricians have been among the most content physicians. They make a huge difference in improving the quality of life for so many people, and that's rewarding," she says.
