28th Annual Clinical Update in Geriatric Medicine

Pittsburgh, PA US
March 5, 2020 to March 7, 2020

We hope you will join us for this award-winning course, which is a collaboration between The University of Pittsburgh, the AGS state chapter, and many healthcare organizations. The course annually attracts up to 400 attendees, many of whom attend every year.

Many ingredients 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

We look forward to seeing you in April!
