Students participate in 4 small group sessions each facilitated by a faculty leader. During these sessions, students observe and engage in patient/physician interactions, practice relationship building with their senior partner and develop lasting relationships with community seniors who in turn introduce students to broad concepts in aging. The program offers an extended track to those students wishing further experience in geriatric patient care.
