Educational Conferences

The geriatric fellows have many opportunities to participate in educational conferences to further enhance their geriatric training. Below are examples of regular opportunities for fellows:
  • Weekly Geriatric Fellowship Seminars: A ninety minute weekly conference attended by fellows, core faculty, residents on their geriatric rotation and other visiting students. A broad range of core geriatric topics are discussed. Speakers include the geriatric fellowship faculty and other local health care professionals.  Each fellow will present two lectures during the year at these conferences.
  • Monthly Geriatric Educational Conferences: A monthly seminar offered for all geriatric faculty, nurse practitioners, fellows, rotating residents and other students. A variety of topics are discussed including updates on medical topics related to geriatrics, patient case reviews, and panel discussions. Each fellow will present two lectures during the year at these conferences.
  • Geriatric Journal Club: Held quarterly as part of the monthly educational conferences listed above. Fellows participate by presenting a critical appraisal of selected articles at each journal club.
  • Palliative Medicine Journal Club: Fellows have the opportunity to participate in quarterly journal clubs held by a local academic hospice and palliative medicine program
  • Research, Evidence-Based Medicine and Quality Improvement: The fellows have weekly sessions and workshops dedicated to learning more about these topics.
