Faculty Guides (Available to Confirmed Faculty Only)

Mr. Samuel is an 85-year-old man who was sent to the Emergency Room for treatment of pneumonia. You are on your medical rotation and your resident asks you to admit him. You learn from his transfer documents that he has lived in the nursing home for the past two years. His medical problems include: dementia, significant enough that he can no longer recognize his family members and needs help with dressing and bathing, although he can still walk with a cane and feed himself; and, hypertension, for which he takes a beta blocker and aspirin. Surgical history is significant for a hernia repair and cholecystectomy.




Notice ⚠️


Web-GEMs will no longer be available via POGOe after August 31, 2017. The web-GEMS modules will be moved to Med-U and are now available via subscription

If your institution created web-GEMs assignments before September, 2016, you are “grandfathered” into web-GEMs on Med-U and your institution will have one year free access to web-GEMs through June, 2018. MedU has already notified users who are ‘grandfathered’ about the process and has sent information on initiating your free access to the course through their new learning management system. If your institution is grandfathered and you haven't already done so, please complete the MedU onboarding form here so you can begin the process of onboarding onto the MedU platform.

If you have not received notification that you are will have free access for the 2017-18 subscription year and would like a quote to purchase a license for access to web-GEMs starting in July, please contact MedU Subscriptions for a quote. If you have any questions about this transition please reach out to Elvy Ickowicz at AGS. If you are currently using web-GEMs modules, you and your trainees will have until August 31, 2017 to complete the module via POGOe at no cost.
