The Division of Geriatrics focuses on the education for a range of students, house staff, fellows, and faculty in the physiology, biology, research, and clinical aspects of aging. This includes an Aging Module of the Organ System course for sophomore medical students, RRC-mandated rotations in geriatric medicine with three or four house staff on the geriatric teaching service at all times, and an accredited fellowship for two geriatric fellows each year.
We also provide gerontological training for student or resident nurses, pharmacists, social workers, dentists, podiatrists, and physical therapists. We have trained for over 2500 such allied health trainees since the division's inception in 1987. Our national and regional Geriatric Conferences also provide accredited CME educational experiences for attendees nationwide.
Below is general information regarding the frequency of regularly scheduled geriatric seminars. All are CME Accredited.
Both geriatric grand rounds and research update conferences are video broadcast. Live Webcast URL: http://www.kaltura.com/tiny/91jqi. Note: this link only works during the broadcast, email UtahGGR@hsc.utah.edu.
