Bridge to Practice

"Bridge to Practice" models have been used extensively in several career fields (e.g. nursing, law) to bolster the exposure to and infusion of knowledge where known educational gaps exist.  The Finger Lakes Geriatric Education Center (FLGEC) seeks to eliminate gaps in geriatric knowledge through several activities, supplementing clinical, team-based practice.  In addition to Grand Rounds and the Geriatric Assessment Clinic, the FLGEC offers:

The Geriatric Immersion Experience (GIMME)

Twice each year, inter-professional health care practitioners attend an evening seminar specifically designed to train URMC Hospitalists, subspecialty providers & health care leaders the principles of geriatric care. The next GIMME will be held in the Fall 2024 via Zoom. Contact Laura Robinson via email for more information or to register.


Ger-E-News are created by our Geriatric Fellows to expand the confidence, knowledge and skill set of new health practitioners, who may have little experience in the field of geriatrics.  Each issue will focus on one topic, highlighting recent research, translation to practice, references, and/or a brief case study.
