Annual Clinical Update in Geriatric Medicine Conference 

This American Geriatrics Society award-winning course  is a successful collaboration between the Pennsylvania Geriatrics Society-Western Division, UPMC/University of Pittsburgh Aging Institute and the University of Pittsburgh, along with the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine Center for Continuing Education in the Health Sciences. 

The course annually attracts up to 400 attendees, many of whom attend every year.

Many components 
contribute to its popularity:

  • It focuses on the challenges of caring for older adults, and incorporates new topics suggested by past attendees
  • It is designed by a multidisciplinary group of clinicians, academics, and payers
  • It showcases approaches that are both state of the art and feasible, i.e., ones you can incorporate immediately
  • It is delivered by speakers selected not just for their expertise but also for their ability to teach
  • Most of the speakers are nationally/internationally renowned
  • It includes a variety of formats, including plenary and keynote talks, multiple smaller breakout sessions, and even opportunities for attendees to present their most challenging cases to subspecialists who are experts in both their own field and geriatrics
