Faculty Development in Gerontology and Geriatrics

Teaching health professionals to work with older adults in the future depends on a supply of educators who have the knowledge and skills to do this in the present.

RIGEC offers a 75-contact hour, interdisciplinary Interdisciplinary Faculty Fellowship in Gerontology and Geriatrics for health professions faculty (academic and clinical), clinical preceptors, and staff educators in health and human service settings.

The application period for the September 2014 - June 2015 Fellows program is open! For details, please download the program flyer.
