Geriatric Medicine is assigned a number of Med 1 and Med 2 sessions starting in the fall of the academic year, usually October and ending usually early May.

Geriatric Admin liaises with Program Director and UGME to review schedule as it becomes available. Once schedule is confirmed, Geriatric Admin arranges room booking at off-campus sites (e.g. SBH, RHC, DLC and SOGH). Advance notice is required as rooms are difficult to obtain if left too late. Also, once a draft date is known for disabilities session, Geriatric Admin will contact Alzheimer Society to clarify availability for session.


  • Geriatric Admin and Program Director receive e-mail from UGME with drafted schedule.
  • Geriatric Admin reviews draft with Program Director. Program Director communicates with UGME, making changes as needed and communicates changes with Geriatric Admin. Geriatric Admin then sends drafted scheduled to geriatric faculty and associate faculty in preparation for assigning teachers.
  • Once faculty and associate faculty have responded with availability, Geriatric Admin sends calendar appointments. Geriatric Admin e-mails UGME with names of faculty assigned as well as rooms/sites booked for each student group per date. Tutors and locations are scheduled into Entrada (University program), along with notes/handouts and any specific instructions to students.
  • Program Director revises session notes from previous year, as needed, and sends to Geriatric Admin to send to UGME for uploading to students, and also to send by e-mail to teachers assigned to respective sessions.
  • Geriatric Admin obtains student lists from Entrada and prepares attendance sheets for the off-campus sessions. Admin then sends attendance sheets to teachers assigned to each respective site and each site returns the signed sheets either by scan/e-mail or by fax to Geriatric Admin. Students who do not sign sheets are marked as absent in Entrada. Students are expected to notify Geriatric Admin if unable to attend session. If space available, student may be allowed to attend an alternate date if session available.
  • Geriatric Admin revises/updates documents for experiencing disabilities session and liaises with Alzheimer's Society educator regarding on-campus booked rooms (HSC campus) and also notes for session.
