The Portland VA Medical Center announces Geriatrics Physician-Community Living Center and Outpatient care
The Geriatrician will manage a Community Living Center patient care panel, maintain an outpatient geriatrics clinic with both consultative and primary care duties, and participate as a clinician-educator.

A clinician-educator will spend the majority of his/her time in direct patient care or in the supervision of housestaff and students in both sub-acute care and outpatient settings. VA geriatricians receive an academic appointment commensurate with qualification at Oregon Health & Sciences University (OHSU), that requires the provider successfully maintain board certification in internal medicine or family medicine and geriatrics. In addition to the role as clinician, the Clinician-Educator is encouraged to have either major administrative responsibilities for an educational or clinical program or a record of continuous productivity in research as documented by publications in peer reviewed journals.
