Faculty Guides (Available to Confirmed Faculty Only)

You are on a geriatric medicine rotation and, for one half day each week, you accompany a geriatrician, Dr. Ready, and a resident on home visits requested by Adult Protective Services (APS).

The Geriatrics team receives a referral from APS to assess an 86-year-old woman named Mrs. James at her home to determine if she is in a state of elder mistreatment or self-neglect, and to determine if she has the capacity to live independently without supervision.




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.
