Continuing Medical Education Offerings
Chief Resident Immersion Training Program
An anonymous foundation provided funding to continue the Chief Resident Immersion Training (CRIT) program in Geriatrics at Wake Forest School of Medicine annually beginning in 2012. A total of 30 chief residents and fellows have been trained as a part of this program, and each participant has developed a geriatrics educational program to implement in his or her own specialty training program.
Wake Forest Geriatrics Principles for Specialists (Wake GPS)
Sticht Center geriatricians, through a grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, have partnered with faculty physicians in specialties outside of geriatrics. The goal is to provide a comprehensive program in geriatrics education for all levels of medical providers offering care to older adult patients. In the past three years, the Wake GPS curriculum has extended geriatrics teaching expertise to 35 faculty members at Wake Forest, including physicians from general internal medicine, hospital medicine, hematology/oncology, nephrology, pulmonary/critical care medicine and emergency medicine.
