Clinical Interest
Dr. Gennari cares for patients at UPMC Senior Care-Shadyside, both as a primary care physician and as a consultant. She was instrumental in developing UPMC Senior Care’s hospitalist service, where one of the geriatricians in the practice is dedicated to the inpatient service at all times, thus increasing the time spent with patients when they are hospitalized. On the inpatient service, she also provides geriatric consultations and also follows the practice’s primary care patients. In addition, Dr. Gennari leads the Division's innovative efforts in developing a Geriatric Patient Centered Medical Home and serves as head of the Division's Clinical Task Force. Finally, she has a strong commitment to education and plays an active role in teaching medical students, residents and geriatric fellows in the inpatient, outpatient and long term care settings
