An operational model for teaching geriatric medicine in a family practice residency program.

Increased concern for our aging population has necessitated an evaluation of the role of gerontology and geriatric medicine in both undergraduate and graduate medical education programs. The instructional model developed for the Family Practice Residency Program at the University of Minnesota Medical School emphasizes removing barriers to health care for the aged and modifying attitudes of physicians toward normal aging. Three general components make up the Geriatric Medicine Program: (1) clinical rotations in geriatric medicine in ambulatory residential facilities, in multilevel long-term care facilities, and in an acute care hospital; (2) geriatric case conferences; and (3) a seminar in gerontology and geriatric medicine. Evaluation of these components by the residents indicates a high degree of satisfaction with the experience and belief in its applicability to future practice.[1]
