GEMs (Geriatric Education Modules)

GEMs are a collection of informative web-based training courses designed for professionals who work with older adults, and educators and students in aging studies. GEMs are developed by experts in a variety of relevant fields. Each GEM includes a narrated slide presentation and ends with a short quiz to test your knowledge. The modules are free of charge.


The seventh edition of Essentials of Clinical Geriatrics by Robert Kane, Joseph Ouslander, Itamar Abrass, and Barbara Resnick is now available.

For nearly three decades, the goal of Essentials of Clinical Geriatrics has remained unchanged: to help clinicians do a better job of caring for their older patients. You will find thorough and authoritative coverage of all the important issues in geriatrics, along with concise, practical guidance on the diagnosis and treatment of the diseases and disorders most commonly encountered in an elderly patient.
