Kayla I. Brodkin, M.D.

Associate Professor

Philosophy of care:
My academic career is focused on educational efforts teaching medical students, internal medicine residents, geriatric fellows and other post-graduate trainees principles of chronic care management and clinical geriatric medicine.  As the geriatric course director for Chronic Care (Conjoint 690), a mandatory course for all senior medical students, and as co-director for Combined Geriatric Didactics, I am actively involved in curriculum development, course assessment and the evaluative processes of our educational effort.  As a staff geriatrician at PSVAHCS, I have both in-patient and ambulatory clinical venues which serve as 'real-life classroom' experiences facilitating teaching trainees about the delivery of medical care to the chronically ill and elderly individuals we serve.
