The New Face of Geriatrics

Crystal Simpson has a dream. She wants to see more minority medical students falling in love with her own, often-overlooked specialty, geriatrics. She’s making it happen, too.

Over the last two years, Simpson has whipped her aspirations into a streamlined program that draws first-year minority medical students from schools nationwide to Hopkins’ Bayview Medical Center and the Center on Aging and Health for a summer of research and clinical rotations in geriatrics.
