Geriatrics and gerontology continue to grow and develop but appear to
be at a crucial point. Clearly, the population is aging with increasing needs
for geriatric care but equally apparent is that there is not, nor will there
be in the foreseeable future, an adequate supply of trained geriatricians
to meet this demand. The primary care physician will continue to be at the
forefront in providing geriatric medical care. Principles
of Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology will serve as a valuable resource
not only for geriatricians but for all physicians who care for older adults.
