Welcome to the MS1 Logitudinal Theme in Geriatrics, Pain Management and Palliative Care
This 4-week rotation is based at the Miami VA Medical Center.Students will assume responsibility for the care of older patients under the supervision of board-certified geriatricians, palliative medicine physicians, geriatric and palliative medicine fellows, and members of the interdisciplinary care team. Clinical activities will take place on the Intermediate Care Unit, the Nursing Home Care Unit and the Geriatrics Primary Care Clinic. Clinical exposure will include longitudinal care of selected patients as well as “first responder” activities for patients with a change in status. Innovative learning sessions, small group sessions and self-learning (training modules on GeriU, assigned readings, and PBL-style learning issues) will emphasize the knowledge and skills required. Student will attend the division’s Geriatrics Grand Rounds and other educational conferences. The clerkship has a strong competency-based component which focuses on core geriatric syndromes. The student must complete online and simulated patient competency assessments and demonstrate the performance standards in order to receive a passing final grade. In addition, a graded evaluation of performance is used which includes the following elements: the standard UMMSM clerkship student evaluation form, required written assignments and oral presentations, a final exam, attendance and participation. Students will maintain an electronic patient encounter log and submit a learning objective checklist and course evaluation to the Geriatric Medicine Education Office at the end of the rotation.
