The sponsoring institution is a 440 bed community academic hospital, 30 miles east of Los Angeles, committed to expanding geriatric services, with the possibility of starting a geriatrics or palliative care fellowship program.  The residency program has a strong geriatrics curriculum in place.  Over the last ten years, five of our graduates have gone on to geriatric fellowship training programs.
