Advancing Geriatrics Education: A Model Curriculum Across the Medical Education Continuum
Create an enhanced integrated educational program in geriatrics, serving the multi-disciplinary teaching needs of UMMS learners, spanning undergraduate and graduate medical education, as well as continuing professional development of both geriatrician and non-geriatrician educators
Establish a “core resource” model that brings together the essential state-of-the-art educational services, technologies, and expertise to support curriculum development, faculty development, assessment and programmatic evaluation.
Enhance the training of clinician educators at all levels around the principles and practice of geriatrics. Geriatric educators will be developed through a multi-faceted approach that will include targeting chief residents through a Chief Resident Immersion Training program, and our faculty through a Faculty Immersion Training program.
Recruit new fellowship-trained clinician educators to expand our existing cadre of academic geriatricians.
