Building the Geriatric Workforce of Tomorrow
The number of seniors in the U.S. is growing dramatically; at the same time, fewer physicians are entering the field of geriatrics. There’s no shortage of jobs for health care professionals experienced in working with older adults – and as Baby Boomers age, the demand will only grow.
Seniors need and deserve caregivers trained to address their unique concerns.
At Hebrew SeniorLife, we provide expert geriatric education to tomorrow’s doctors, nurses, therapists, pharmacists, and other health professionals. Our intent is that wherever an older adult seeks care – whether it’s within the Hebrew SeniorLife system or not – they receive high-quality care from appropriately trained providers.
Harvard Medical School Seal of Approval
The only senior care organization affiliated with Harvard Medical School, we train more than 1,000 students, residents, and fellows each year. Over the past 50 years, we have trained more geriatric fellows than any other teaching program in the U.S. If you train at Hebrew SeniorLife, you’ll work within multidisciplinary teams of experts – about 90 percent of Hebrew SeniorLife medical staff are involved in teaching.
Hebrew SeniorLife alumni have gone on to leadership positions at Boston teaching hospitals and health care organizations around the country.
The Best Care in an Academic Setting
Curiosity and innovation flows through everything we do at Hebrew SeniorLife. Our patients and residents benefit from access to the latest advances in senior care. At the same time, future doctors, nurses, therapists, and other health professionals learn directly from the life experiences of the older adults in Hebrew SeniorLife’s communities.
