Geriatrics & Palliative Medicine

Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine

The Division of Geriatrics and Palliative Care provides medical consultations in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Board certified geriatricians and palliative care physicians, nurse practitioners, neuropsychologist, licensed, master's-prepared social workers, and registered nurses function in an Interdisciplinary Team. This innovative approach to geriatric and palliative medicine is growing and dynamic, and the team provides patient-focused and family-focused care. Greenville Health System is developing other programs to meet the special needs of our aging populations.

Internal medicine residents train with the Division, and team members are involved in research and education with partners including Clemson and USC School of Medicine and Public Health.
