Postgraduate Medical Specialist Training, Geriatrics

As a field of specialisation, geriatrics has quickly become more popular, and it is no wonder as the work of a geriatrician is versatile and interesting. The outlook in terms of employment is also good.

The range of duties of a geriatrician is vast, ranging from the promotion of health of the elderly to good treatment at the final stages of life. The study programme can be completed in five years.

If you are a doctor who likes the elderly, a comprehensive and operation ability-oriented approach to work, and are not afraid to tackle complex situations, geriatrics could be your speciality!
