Geriatrics is a branch of medicine that focuses on meeting the unique health needs of older adults. As people age, they face a more complex set of health challenges that may include disease, disability, and physical, mental, and emotional issues. Geriatricians are trained to help older adults maintain their health and quality of life.
As our population ages, the importance of geriatric medicine has taken on new significance. The University of Mississippi Medical Center shares that interest by providing internal medicine physicians who specialize in caring for older adults.
