The mission of the Geriatric Emergency Medicine (GEM) fellowship is to provide and advance state-of-the-art geriatric emergency medicine expertise through teaching, research, and clinical care. It aims to train future geriatric emergency medicine leaders by providing interdisciplinary training that addresses the unique needs of the geriatric emergency department patient. It will provide board-eligible, residency trained Emergency Physicians with the necessary skills to create careers in GEM. The fellowship program goals include:
These goals will be accomplished through collaboration between the Mass General emergency department, the Brigham and Women’s Hospital Emergency Department (e.g. with mentorship available from geriatric focused EM faculty and lectures during the Administration rotation), the Division of Palliative Care and Geriatric Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital and the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network. The overarching goal will be to increase expertise in clinical management of geriatric syndromes such as frailty and falls, dementia/delirium, medication management, palliative care and post hospital acute care and skilled nursing facility care and translate this expertise into improved care of the geriatric ED patient.
