Clinicians Dedicated to caring for Minnesota's older adults


  • Tuesday, September 12, 2023 12:54 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

    Help build the geriatric workforce by becoming involved in the University of Minnesota's Geriatric Case Competition!

    This autumn we are hosting a university wide geriatric case competition for health science students. We would love for community experts to participate as a coach. The time commitment is 6 hours, and all activities are virtual/online.

    Serve as a Coach:

    Coach Orientation Tues 9/26, 5-6 PM online, live

    Team Orientation Mon 10/02, 5-6 PM online, live

    Team meetings between 10/2 - 11/14, scheduled with your team

    The Interprofessional Geriatric Case Competition provides an interprofessional learning opportunity for teams of undergraduate and graduate students from different disciplines to gain simulated experience in creating a care plan for a complex older patient with multiple chronic health conditions. Students will be placed in an interprofessional team supported by a faculty or community expert coach and work together over a month to create and present an innovative 25-minute case presentation. Expert judges review and score the presentations in late October. The competition will be September 26-through early November, 2023. We are grateful for sponsorship from MAGIC, who supports the prizes for student participants.

    Workforce Enhancement and Support: GWEP + MAGIC

    Author: Teresa M. Schicker, MPA

    The Minnesota Association of Geriatrics Inspired Clinicians (MAGIC) 2022 Annual Conference will feature several experts in aging from the University of Minnesota. In addition, the Minnesota Northstar Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program is a sponsor of this year’s conference. The GWEP is excited to partner with MAGIC in our mutual quest to support clinicians and learners who care for older adults in Minnesota. From its inception, the Minnesota Northstar GWEP has recognized the importance of partnerships with Minnesota’s professional associations in aging, such as MAGIC and the Minnesota Gerontological Society. Collaboration with such organizations enables the Minnesota Northstar GWEP to reach out from the University to practicing professionals with its educational programs, materials and expertise.

    A key part of this year’s GWEP participation in the MAGIC conference will occur during the James Pattee Leadership virtual session on the afternoon of November 3. This program has a theme of Interdisciplinary Care. The presentation will use materials from the GWEP Geriatric Case Competition and will share some exciting new self-learning modules hosted by GWEP.
