Geriatrician Joins OU Physicians

Wednesday, August 17, 2016 - Campus News -

Geriatrician Lee A. Jennings, M.D., M.S.H.S., has established her medical practice with OU Physicians. She has also been named an assistant professor with the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. Geriatricians provide health care services specific to seniors just as pediatricians specialize in health needs specific to children. 

Jennings is board certified in geriatrics and internal medicine. She completed a geriatrics fellowship at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) division of Geriatrics, where she also completed a National Research Service Award Primary Care Health Services Research Fellowship with the division of General Internal Medicine and Health Services Research. She completed a residency and served as chief resident at the University of California-San Francisco. She earned her medical degree at Eastern Virginia Medical School, Norfolk. She also earned a master’s degree in health services at UCLA Fielding School of Public Health.

Jennings is also serving as the clinical director for the central region of the Oklahoma Healthy Aging Initiative, a program dedicated to enhancing the health of Oklahoma's seniors.

OU Physicians geriatricians see patients on the OU Health Sciences Center campus at 1122 NE 13th Street. For appointments, call (405) 271-3050. As part of The Donald W. Reynolds Department of Geriatric Medicine at the OU College of Medicine, OU Physicians geriatricians teach other physicians about specialized care for seniors at the OU College of Medicine. 

With more than 660 doctors, OU Physicians is the state’s largest physician group. The practice encompasses almost every adult and child specialty. Many OU Physicians have expertise in the management of complex conditions that is unavailable anywhere else in the state, region or sometimes even the nation. Some have pioneered surgical procedures or innovations in patient care that are world firsts. 

OU Physicians see patients in their offices at the OU Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City and at clinics in Edmond, Midwest City and other cities around Oklahoma. When hospitalization is necessary, they often admit patients to OU Medical Center. Many also care for their patients in other hospitals around the metro area. OU Physicians serve as faculty at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and train the region’s future physicians.
