Clinical research activities at the Buehler Center are actively informed by the clinical and teaching service of the Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation Department of Geriatrics.
Departmental activities include outpatient comprehensive geriatric assessments, inpatient geriatric consults, complex medical consults at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, osteoporosis and bone health evaluation and management, and geriatric rehabilitation care at the Warren Barr Pavilion. Clinical teaching is conducted at all sites of care for trainees at all stages of medical education. The geriatric fellowship program trains one fellow per year.
Clinical faculty conduct research in the areas of gero-oncology and pharmacology, metabolic bone disease, Alzheimer disease and dementias, and geriatric patient safety. The faculty are involved in numerous practice improvement projects that range from the development of clinical guidelines in gero-oncology to auditing hospital readmission of frail older people.
