- Specialist Geriatrics Training
The G-TRAC Centre and Aged & Extended Care Services at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital as a training alliance provides for comprehensive specialist geriatric medicine training program with exposure to acute, sub-acute and community geriatrics. Two core years of specialist training is possible with our program. Many of our trainees then consider a non-core year in a second specialty (e.g. palliative care) or academic geriatrics (e.g. PhD). We have successfully trained to completion geriatricians with dual specialties as geriatricians with academic degrees.
In Australia, the specialist geriatric medicine training is through the Royal Australasian College of Physicians pathway and firstly requires completion of the written and viva examination following three years of basic physician training.
