York's Family Medicine Residency recognizes the importance of geriatrics in any family physician's practice. As our geriatric population continues to expand, family physicians will provide a significant portion of their ongoing care. A longitudinal and block experience is provided. All residents are assigned nursing home patients to follow over a two-year period. A geriatric block rotation is also included in the G2 year. This block includes supervised experience and teaching in the nursing home in a one-on-one situation with the Family Medicine faculty.
