This article published in Gerontology & Geriatrics Education discusses the need to enhance medical education and training in Geriatric Medicine (GM) as the population of older adults increases. Faculty at two southeastern universities developed a Resident Award Summit, a two-day active learning experience, designed to expose family and internal medicine residents to GM principles and the various career options available in GM. Experiences such as the Resident Award Summit allow GM faculty to educate and prepare residents though positive teaching experiences, providing residents with the skills needed to care for older adults in their communities.
