Gugliucci is a Professor and the Director for Geriatrics Education and Research, as well as the Director of U-ExCEL (UNE~Exercise and Conditioning for Easier Living) Fitness/Wellness Program for older adults within the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine Division of Geriatrics. Her “Learning by Living” research projects, UNECOM signature programs, advances medical and health professions students’ learning through the application of ethnographic/autobiographic immersion research methods.  Learning by Living: Nursing Home Immersion involves “admitting” medical students into nursing homes to live the life of an elder resident for 10-14 days complete with a diagnosis and standard procedures of care.  The Learning by Living: 48 Hour Hospice Home research immerses students into an 18 bed in-patient hospice home to work with an inter-professional team in providing patient care, family support, and post mortem care.  She also conducts research on older adult function, falls, and proprioception.
