Get to Know Bruce Kinosian, MD FACP

Board Treasurer
Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Dr. Kinosian is a geriatrician and health services researcher at the Cpl. Michael Crescenz VA Medical Center in Philadelphia, PA, and the University of Pennsylvania. He is an associate director of the Geriatrics and Extended Care Data Analysis Center, a multi-site center that supports VA geriatrics operations using integrated multi-payer data and sophisticated HSR methods.

He has organized and participated in a number of demonstrations to improve the care of frail elders, helping them live with dignity at home. He serves as faculty with the Independence at Home Learning Collaborative and is the current treasurer of AAHCM. He works closely with two Philadelphia all- inclusive care for the elderly (PACE) programs, and is chair of the National PACE Association Research Committee.

Dr. Kinosian is part of a team that leads a successful Independence at Home practice at the University of Pennsylvania, which is part of the Mid-Atlantic Consortium. Over the past 25 years, the UPenn housecall practice has led an interagency, interdisciplinary team involving the local Area Agency on Aging and home-health agencies, to bring the benefits of integrated long- term services and supports to elders outside of the PACE model of care.

He grew up in Los Angeles, CA, and attended Stanford University and the University of California–San Francisco School of Medicine. He trained in primary care internal medicine at Baltimore City Hospitals (now Johns Hopkins Bayview) and completed fellowships in general medicine and geriatrics at the University of Pennsylvania.
