As a medical student geriatrics is a particularly interesting field because of the breadth and depth of knowledge it covers. Challenging cases with overlapping complexities provide an endless source of intellectual stimulation. Becoming involved in geriatrics early means getting high-yield, first hand exposure to important clinical scenarios. In the end, however, the real draw of geriatrics is the people. For whatever reason, the practitioners within the field, and the patients themselves represent a diverse spectrum of individuals that are simply enjoyable to be around.
