The Long Term Care Medicine Track is a course which will provide students with specialized training and experience in longitudinal medical care. With the rapidly aging population and increasing needs for long term care resources, there is a growing demand for physicians to lead in quality management of longitudinal care services. Students in this specialty track will learn various, multi-faceted topics in continuity of Post-Acute, Long-Term Care, End-of-Life Care, and Palliative and Hospice Care. Students will be assigned to a nursing home resident and will actively participate in the longitudinal care of their as-signed patient. Students will develop long-term relationships as health advocates for wellness and help their patients achieve the healthiest, highest quality of life possible in their current stage of life.
The track will be a continuum of two consecutive semester courses starting in the second semester of the first year and ending with the first semester of the second year.
