Training health professionals to work with older adults in the future depends on a supply of faculty educated to do this in the present. RIGEC has substantial experience in designing and implementing two faculty development programs: one that provided 120 hours of training over a two-year period, and a second program that provided 24 hours of focused training on health literacy for tenure line and clinical faculty, including 16 hours of face-to-face workshop training and discussion, with 8 hours of structured independent study and practice.
RIGEC now offers a 75-contact hour, interdisciplinary Interdisciplinary Faculty Fellowship in Gerontology and Geriatrics for health professions faculty (academic and clinical), clinical preceptors, and staff trainers and educators in health and human service settings.
The application period for the September 2013 - June 2014 Fellows program is open! For details, please download the program flyer.
