PHA 605 - Issues in Geriatrics II


This is the second of two courses that will provide the student with a broad overview of the principles of geriatric medicine from the perspective of the primary care practitioner. Major geriatric syndromes commonly encountered in clinical practice will be introduced, providing the student with practical knowledge regarding the care of geriatric patients. This course has been designed to promote interprofessional education and practice. PA students will be expected to work with students from other health-related disciplines, including but not limited to physical therapy, occupational therapy, health and wellness, and pharmacology. Students will accomplish the stated objectives through lecture presentations, discussion posts, and critical thinking/case-based discussions.
