Geriatrician Resume Template

Geriatricians are doctors who specialize on caring for older adults and apply medical gerontology or geriatrics.  Recognizing that the body and medical needs of aging people are often different from middle age adults, geriatricians apply medication of the same disease afflicting both age groups differently.  For instance, cancer detected in old age may not be treated with aggressive chemotherapy or surgery as younger people would.  There’s no specific age threshold when geriatricians begin to make better sense, but it’s often after age 60.  Geriatricians can be general practitioners or specialists such as geriatric neurology, geriatric dentistry, geriatric psychiatry, etc.
