Geriatric Medicine Undergraduate Medical Education
The Undergraduate Medical Education program is to develop, deliver and evaluate a high quality educational program for the MD Program.
Undergraduate Medical students start their academic year in August and goes through to June. Usually the Medical students that in their first year don't start course with the Section of Geriatric until October. The students that are in "TTC" do their transition in the beginning of the academic year around September.

Sections that have a postgraduate Medical Education Program designate Postgraduate Program Directors.
This page was moved here from "Undergraduate Medical Education Program" - was that really intentional? The page seems to be about UGME, nothing geriatric? Emailed Suzanne Doyle User:Ttenbergen 21:31, 2 December 2018 (CST)
