Geriatric Medicine Program faculty are involved in clinical services established especially for older persons. These services include:
Geriatric Evaluation Center at Maple Knoll Village
Our clinical faculty and residents provide care and conduct training at the Geriatric Evaluation Center at Maple Knoll Village in Springdale, OH. The Geriatric Evaluation Center helps people, aged 65 and older, find solutions, whether it's sorting an older adult’s complex medical problems, providing advice on coping with memory loss or helping a family make decisions about living arrangements. Our center keeps the patient’s personal physician informed of its findings and recommendations.

The Christ Hospital also serves as the clinical home of UC's Geriatric Medicine Fellowship Program.
