Have you taken advantage of our web-GEMs modules? These peer-reviewed interactive case modules based on the AAMC Geriatrics Competencies are great for independent learning and can be integrated into clinical training. The whole curriculum can be used within a geriatrics, internal medicine, or family medicine clerkship as well as in nursing, physician assistant, and interprofessional team training. The web-GEMs cases develop learners’ understanding of geriatric medicine and integrate that understanding as they expand their skills in other specialties. This has been a collaborative effort developed over several years by authors from 27 different institutions.
Furthermore, POGOe users with Confirmed Faculty status can now create unique assignments for students to complete and instantly receive a report on the progress of students.
See below to become Confirmed Faculty.
