Abstract

With support from the AAMC/John A. Hartford Foundation the University of Massachusetts Medical School developed a Geriatrics curriculum and faculty development that would be integrated across all four years. Beginning in Fall 2001, these were implemented over the next two academic years in both preclinical and clinical areas and are highlighted on the timeline above. Would implementation of this new Geriatrics curriculum and faculty development impact students’ ratings of instruction time in Geriatrics?
