Division of Geriatrics & Palliative Care

Advancing the Future Treatment of Geriatric & End-of-Life Conditions

The Division of Geriatric and Palliative Care in Dell Medical School’s Department of Internal Medicine works together to enhance and improve the future of geriatric and palliative medicine in Central Texas. The division is focused on further expanding its reach within Austin to meet the complex needs of its population. Faculty members within the division strive to provide world-class clinical care while advancing the field of geriatric and palliative medicine through collaborative research and the training of new physician leaders.

Clinical Care

The division provides clinical care at the following sites in the greater Austin region: Dell Seton Medical Center, Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin, Austin Geriatric Specialists, Hospice Austin, WellMed and the Austin VA Clinic.


Graduate Medical Education

The division leads Dell Med’s Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship, which offers physicians in training a unique, longitudinal curriculum with dedicated time focused on health equity, leadership and well-being. Throughout their training, fellows in the program work in a variety of health systems and care settings with diverse patient populations, and they graduate fully prepared to practice in inpatient, outpatient, hospice and palliative care settings. Additionally, fellows in the program supplement their clinical knowledge by engaging in a yearlong board-focused didactic curriculum and accessing board review materials.
