The VA Geriatric Scholars Program
The Geriatric Scholars Program is a workforce development program to infuse geriatrics into VA primary care settings.
This program is designed to improve access and quality of care for older Veterans who are seen in primary care settings and each participant is envisioned as an ambassador of change. The core program is an intensive course in geriatrics, an intensive workshop in quality improvement and each Scholar initiates a local quality improvement project to demonstrate learning and improve care or clinic efficiency. As a longitudinal program, learning is tailored to each individual. Other educational components are also available to alumni of the core program. Other components include clinical practicum experiences, webinars, self-directed web-based learning, enduring educational materials and on-site team training for the entire PACT(s) in rural clinics.
