Speaker: Mathias Schlögl, Barmelweid Rehabilitation Clinic in Switzerland
Dr. Mathias Schlögl, a geriatrician and internist, has been the Chief Physician of Geriatrics at the Barmelweid Rehabilitation Clinic in Switzerland since July 2022.
He completed his medical degree in 2009 at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg.
He gained extensive experience in various geriatric fields (acute geriatrics, geriatric psychiatry, and palliative medicine) during his tenure at the University Hospitals of Basel and Zurich.
Dr. Schlögl was awarded a scholarship from the National Institutes of Health (NIH/NIDDK), which allowed him to spend a research visit in Phoenix, USA, from 2012 to 2015.
Following his research, he earned a Master’s in Public Health (MPH) from the Harvard T.H. School of Public Health.
In addition, he completed a Certificate of Advanced Studies in Palliative Care and Organizational Ethics, the Postgraduate College in Geriatrics from the European Academy for Medicine of Ageing (EAMA), and an Executive MBA in General Management at the University of St. Gallen (HSG).
His primary clinical focuses are delirium, communication with patients, and geriatric palliative medicine, which are also at the heart of his research.
Dr. Schlögl has a keen interest in the education of young physicians, and in recognition of his dedication to continuing education, he received the national SIWF Teaching Award in 2021 and 2022.
As a delegate of the Swiss Society for Geriatrics (SFGG) for the SIWF/FMH Continuing Education Commission, he is also committed to advocating for this cause in his professional capacity.
