Robert Kaiser, M.D., associate professor of medicine at the George Washington University (GW) School of Medicine and Health Sciences, was elected to serve on the Board of Directors for the American Academy of Home Care Medicine (AAHCM). Kaiser will serve on the AAHCM Board of Directors through the 2019 term.

“We are delighted that Dr. Kaiser has joined our Board of Directors,” stated Mindy Fain, M.D., president of the AAHCM. “He has been a longstanding contributor to the Academy in so many ways and a leading national clinical-educator in home-based primary care. We will all benefit greatly from his exceptional experience and wisdom.”

Kaiser has been greatly involved with the Academy, speaking and moderating VA- and practice management-focused sessions at many AAHCM Annual Meetings. Most recently, he acted as moderator for the “Emerging Technologies for Clinicians and Practices: Insights from the VA” session presented at the 2016 Annual Meeting. He has served on the AAHCM Program Committee since 2008. Kaiser also writes the longstanding VA Perspectives column featured in AAHCM’s bi-monthly newsletter, Frontiers. In this publication, Kaiser discusses timely issues and new developments facing the VA sector of home-based primary care.

At GW, Kaiser serves as an associate director of the Geriatric Medicine Fellowship and as a member of GW’s Center on Aging, Health, and the Humanities. He is also the medical director of the Home Based Primary Care Program at the VA Medical Center in Washington, D.C. Kaiser received his M.D. degree from the Medical College of Pennsylvania in 1987 and trained in internal medicine at the University of Minnesota Hospital and Clinic. He was a fellow in Geriatric Medicine at Duke University and earned a Master of Health Sciences in Clinical Research in Duke's Clinical Research Training Program.
