Mini-fellowships allow medical faculty to expand their geriatrics teaching skills through a three-day, on-site workshop, followed by a year-long mentorship.
The mini-fellowship curriculum covers these content areas:
- Targeted geriatrics principles for medical and surgical subspecialty practices with large volumes of geriatric patients, including emergency medicine, general surgery, orthopedic surgery, and internal medicine
- Teaching skills for varied practice settings
- Techniques for identifying teaching opportunities
In addition, participants can use scholarships to attend the Current Topics in Geriatrics Course, co-sponsored by the Johns Hopkins Division of Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology and the American Geriatrics Society.
Leaders in geriatrics and education provide didactic and experiential instruction in teaching techniques and instruction in critical geriatrics content areas, end-of-life care, quick functional assessment, and effective transition of care for elderly patients.
Participants also receive a syllabus with papers that offer techniques and principles for teaching geriatrics to students and residents, as well as copies of all of the slide presentations on CD ROM.
The Donald W. Reynolds Foundation will provide tuition for a limited number of teaching faculty to participate in this program.
