Planning a One-day Geriatrics Retreat

Aimed primarily at interns, the day-long retreat format provides a positive, fun experience with learning geriatrics early in the residency. An ideal way to kick off a new or expanded geriatric teaching effort, the retreat features uninterrupted time to concentrate on geriatrics, use innovative teaching methods and cover topics difficult to address on busy inpatient wards.
