A HRSA Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program

Midwest Geriatrics – Palliative Fellowships Consortium
Geriatrics Twitter Journal Club

Join Geriatric Medicine and Palliative Care fellows from multiple programs at noon central time on the first Tuesday of every month, as they host the Geriatrics Journal Club using the Twitter Account @GeriatricsJC and the hashtag #GeriJC. Together with Geriatric experts and Fellowship trainees, we review a scientific article with a short video, posting questions and polls to engage the audience in a critical appraisal about Geriatric research. Healthcare professionals, trainees, and researchers are invited to participate.
