At the end of the clerkship all fourth-year med students' can evaluate and manage syndromes and diseases common in older patients, possess working knowledge of aging, provide physical examinations and history taking of older patients with sensory, functional and cognitive impairments.

Students are assessed using quizzes based on the online dementia and delirium curriculum.

"Since its inception, the clerkship has met all of the ambulatory core geriatric competencies," explained lead author Daniel J. Oates, MD, MSc, an assistant professor of medicine at BUSM Geriatrics Section. "Students' in the program mastered the core competencies as shown by their responses to the questionnaires," he adds.
