Program Activities

Annual Welcome Picnic:

Welcome event for all fellows, faculty, staff and their families.  This informal get together is a time for the team to meet and begin getting to know one another.

Annual Fellows Retreat:

Each fall, the division hosts an afternoon retreat for the fellows.  In past years, we have participated in Extreme Escape, Painting With a Twist, a scavenger hunt in the San Antonio Botanical Gardens, Lego Land, and many more.

Graduation:

Every June the Division of Geriatrics, Gerontology, and Palliative Medicine hosts a Graduation Luncheon to honor the outgoing fellows for the tremendous work they put forth.  This highlight of our academic year is a celebration not just for the fellows, but for their families as well.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic our faculty surprised the 2019-2020 fellows with a socially distanced graduation car parade complete with a Mariachi Band.

Holiday Pot Luck:

Every December, faculty provide an arrangement of main dishes, while staff and fellows prepare sides and desserts for the Annual Holiday Pot Luck.

Wellness Activities:

Throughout the year, the division puts on additional, family friendly, wellness events.  Previous events include Movie Nights, Game Nights, Picnics, Dinners, Wedding & Baby Showers, and Yoga.
