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.
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.
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.
