What is a General Physician? In simple terms, a general Physician is a general doctor who has completed at least six additional years of training in a medical specialisation, after their basic medical degree and internship. General Physicians specialise in patients with multiple complex illnesses who need higher levels of care than normal.
What is a Geriatrician? A geriatrician is a doctor who has completed specialist training in the care of older adults above 65. Older adults often have more complex health care needs than younger adults, This means geriatricians look at the whole person across medical, functional, cognitive, nutritional and social domains. This holistic assessment allows development of a management plan based on that person’s values and goals. This is also important because no two 80 year olds have had identical life experiences – due to life events and some lifestyle choices, people can have a vastly different health status at the same age.
