The American Geriatrics Society's (AGS) Advancing Geriatrics Academic Programs (ADGAP) has released new updated "Minimum Geriatric Competencies for Medical Students." The Minimum Competencies in Geriatrics for Medical Students, updated in 2021, are competencies that the graduating medical student, in the context of a specific older adult patient scenario, must be able to demonstrate, in collaboration with an interprofessional team when appropriate. They are based on the Geriatric 5Ms and adapted from the 2009 Geriatrics Competencies.
