The Geriatrics Section Educational Conference Series is a weekly conference occurring Friday mornings from 9 to 10 a.m. in the Chaffee-Bodon Conference Room (Robinson 2501). The target audience is medical students, geriatricians, fellows in geriatrics, internists, geriatric clinical nurse specialists, nurse practitioners, geriatric social workers, and other physicians with a special interest in caring for older adults.  The series aims to promote collegiality and interdisciplinary exchange involving care of older patients, expose views of recognized experts on important issues in clinical geriatrics, and guide the integration of subject matter into clinical practice and decision-making. While some conferences focus on original research in geriatrics, others address evidence-based and core topics.

Once every other month, Geriatric in geriatrics present Journal Club, a discussion of current literature that may have implications for current practice. Also twice a year, we host a Mini Geriatric Scholarship Day, where the goals is to provide informal updates to keep the Geriatric Section aware of current internal research.  Section members are invited to give brief overviews of their current research projects/papers and to invite comments/questions. Journal Club and Mini-Scholarship Days are the only sessions for which clinicians cannot claim CME credit.
