Geriatric opportunities are available in outpatient and inpatient settings, or a combination of both.  We have four clinical preceptors that practice in Home Based Primary Care as part of an Interdisciplinary Team, our Community Living Center in Long Term Care, or practice in both areas.  Rotations are available at the Dallas VA Medical Center and the Sam Rayburn Memorial Hospital in Bonham, Texas.  We focus on disease states particular to the geriatric population, including pain and palliative care, constipation, anxiety and depression, dementia, Alzheimer's disease & delirium, osteoporosis and genitourinary issues.
