Just as the older gentleman whispered to the young man, one of my longtime career mentors recently told me that he whispers, "Geriatrics—there’s a great future in geriatrics" to his younger colleagues and advisees. I could not agree more. Geriatrics is the future for all of us—personally as well as professionally—as educators, researchers, and clinicians. With the average life span increasing each passing year, the population of older adults is increasing. Just as the child and adolescent psychiatric patient has unique features, there are psychosocial, developmental, metabolic, and drug-response issues as well as disorders that are unique to the geriatric patient.
