In actual fact, the large majority of geriatricians are family medicine or internal medicine specialists whose practice has developed into special focus on care of the elderly. Formal additional training fellowships exist where already certified Family Physicians and Internists can become qualified with a Certificate of Additional Qualification in Geriatrics. In addition, many physicians gain valuable added experience and skill treating the elderly through spending years practicing in retirement communities, such as in Florida and Arizona.
