27th Annual Clinical Update - April 25-27, 2019


More than 390 geriatrics professionals from all disciplines, including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, social workers, long-term care and managed care providers, and health care administrators participated in the 27th Annual Clinical Update in Geriatric Medicine conference held at the Pittsburgh Marriott City Center Hotel April 25-27. The course attracted registrants from numerous states, including California, North Carolina, New York and Washington.

Previously awarded the American Geriatrics Society Achievement Award for Excellence in a CME program, this conference continues to be a well-respected resource to educate healthcare professionals involved in the direct care of older persons by providing evidence-based solutions for common medical problems that afflict older adults daily and for which rapidly evolving research (much done in Pittsburgh) is revealing new approaches that are feasible for the real world.

Under the leadership of course directors Shuja Hassan, MD, and Neil M. Resnick, MD, who worked tirelessly with the planning committee, the course is a premier educational event in the region. The course attracts prominent international and national lecturers and nationally renowned local faculty.

New this year, a Geriatric Cardiology Symposium and Cardiology Expert Panel Q&A,, which was rated exceptional by attendees. The symposium and Cardiology panel featured guest faculty  Parag Goyal, MD, MSc, and Benjamin Wessler, MD with local faculty presenters Daniel Forman, MD and Jared Magnani, MD. Another highlight of the conference was the lecture by guest faculty  Barbara Messinger-Rapport, MD, the “Year in Review for Geriatric Medicine,” which addressed recent advances and controversies.

The annual conference ensures that each lecture, symposium and breakout session offer participants evidence-based “pearls for practice” designed to be immediately incorporated into the realities of daily practice. 

The conference is jointly sponsored by the Pennsylvania Geriatrics Society – Western Division; UPMC/University of Pittsburgh Aging Institute; and University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing, in partnership with the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine Center for Continuing Education in the Health Sciences.
