Geriatrics

During the geriatrics rotation, Overlook Family Medicine residents will work with elderly patients in a number of settings, including Overlook and Chatham Family Practice centers. Within the resident's three years of training, there are innumerable opportunities to provide care for this population in the outpatient setting and when significant illness occurs, in the hospital setting.

The residency program also provides care for many patients who are in the Berkeley Heights Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (BHNRC), a nearby 130-bed facility providing subacute, short- and long-term care and rehabilitation. BHNRC's medical director is the associate director of Overlook Family Medicine Residency Program, and is both a geriatrician and a family physician. Patients admitted to BHNRC for subacute care may receive physical, occupational and speech therapies, as well as a prolonged course of intravenous antibiotics for infectious endocarditis or osteomyletis, or continuous peritoneal dialysis. This facility also provides a palliative care program for patients.

Every Family Medicine resident is assigned a panel of patients at BHNRC, whom they see monthly during the second and third years of residency training. During the geriatrics rotations in the second and third year of training, the resident participates in rounds at the Center every Monday and Friday afternoon, closely supervised by our associate director.
