Abstract

The study of aging and geriatrics is a relatively recent area of study and specialization. Much of the increase in focus on geriatrics has been a result of the explosion of the aging population. It therefore has become essential for the modern clinician to have an understanding of the different disciplines involved in administering to the aging population. Keeping track of recent advances can be a daunting undertaking. This chapter will prepare the reader to appreciate the multidisciplinary approach to geriatric medicine. This growing demographic has a dramatic impact on the future of scientific research.
