Combined Internal Medicine & Geriatrics Residency Program

The Department of General Internal Medicine and The Glennan Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology are working together to offer an exciting new combined residency in Geriatrics and Internal Medicine, or Ger-IMed Program.

The combined Ger-IMed Program is a four-year residency that was developed to prepare graduating primary care physicians for the challenges of practicing medicine in the 21st century. By 2010, the first “baby boomers” will become the first “senior boomers” turning 65 years of age. Currently, persons over 65 make up 12.5% of the population. By 2040, they will comprise 20% of the population, totaling 75 million.

In the U.S. News and World Report's Best Hospitals 2014-15 list, the geriatrics program at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital (SNGH) was recognized as "high performing," meaning the quality of care ranked in the top 25 percent nationwide. EVMS faculty from the Glennan Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology help staff SNGH — the top-rated hospital in Virginia — and its geriatrics program.
