web-GEMs is a series of interactive case modules linked to the AAMC Geriatrics Competencies for medical students, NPs, and PAs. The course is ideal for use within a geriatrics, internal medicine, or family medicine clerkship. Individual cases can also be integrated into another clerkship or clinical training with an emphasis on core topics, such as neurology, psychiatry, emergency medicine, or OB/GYN.
- Case-based Online Curriculum
- Addresses AAMC Geriatrics Competencies
- Peer Reviewed
- Student Progress Reports
- Four Additional IPE Cases
The 26 web-GEMs cases were created through a collaborative effort with authors from 27 different institutions.
"web-GEMs address many of AAMC Geriatric Medicine Competencies, making selection of cases hard. What a great problem to have, though! The format is similar to SIMPLE, making it familiar for students to navigate. Tracking whether the assigned modules have been completed is incredibly useful. Incorporating the modules’ teaching points into a discussion helps to emphasize the learning points further and extend the classroom effect.”

“In enjoy doing these modules on my own time much more than having to sit through lectures and would like to do more of them.”
“I liked the opportunity to think of what I would do and compare it to the ‘expert.’”
