The Division of Geriatrics and Gerontology has a long-standing partnership with the Madison VA Geriatrics Research Education and Clinical Center (GRECC).
Many division faculty have dual appointments in the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and the Madison VA GRECC. The two entities also share trainees and core missions.
- Veterans and non-veterans alike have access to high-quality clinical care delivered through innovative programs.
- The organizations work jointly to provide broad and deep educational experiences to clinicians and clinician-researchers in training.
- Closely aligned research programs allow investigators to take advantage of both institutions’ unique populations and resources to further the understanding of aging and age-related diseases.
