Geriatric Assessment Interdisciplinary Team (GAIT) training workshops emphasize the value of an interdisciplinary team approach to the assessment and treatment of older adults. Students participate in one- or two-day workshops at selected facilities on the Eastern Shore.
GAIT is funded by grants through UMB’s Geriatrics and Gerontology Education and Research (GGEAR) Program. Training materials, hotel accommodations, and meals are provided at no cost. Travel stipends also are provided.
Upcoming fall 2019 trainings include:
Friday, Oct. 4, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Please note that Union Hospital requires all students to submit their most recent immunization record (measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox, and Hepatitis B) prior to the GAIT event. This is a new hospital policy, and no student can participate until their record is received and approved by the hospital representatives indicated on the registration form. Students are to send their record directly to the hospital.
