The Department of Family Medicine and Community Health has been fortunate to receive a $18.8 million dollar gift from the Parker Health Group (https://www.parkerlife.org/about-us/executive-leadership/) to establish the Parker Division of Geriatrics. This gift is allowing us to expand our 35-year collaborative activities with Parker to establish a national center for excellence in geriatrics education, research, and clinical care for seniors. Parker Health, 100 plus years-old, is one of the country’s leading aging services organizations offering the full spectrum of care in communities throughout New Jersey.
The gift is allowing us to elevate our departmental activities to include fellowship level geriatrics training, action-oriented effectiveness research, and clinical care in a variety of settings and communities. The department will bring the strengths of Rutgers, one of the countries leading research universities with its multidisciplinary resources, to help solve contemporary problems of aging.
The department is currently recruiting research and clinical faculty and staff for the division.
Those interested in being a part of this exciting new venture should please contact the department at:
