Conferences

In addition to clinical training, there are numerous conferences and didactic activities for fellows, including an introductory lecture series, weekly clinical conferences, regular journal clubs, case discussions, Medical Directorship lectures and a monthly interdisciplinary clinical conference at the VA Ann Arbor GRECC. The conferences include up-to-date scientific information on core topics in geriatric medicine, with faculty members from several departments within U-M as speakers.

Fellows are also afforded the opportunity to attend local conferences such as the Movement Disorders Conference that are built into the fellowship curriculum. Furthermore learners are provided with a stipend to attend one national conference such as the annual American Geriatrics Society meeting.
