Aging Couple across the Curriculum

Aging Couple Across the Curriculum is a unique program designed around a couple who "age" a decade with each year of medical school. In these half-day sessions, students encounter the aging couple through a standardized patient experience. Interactive breakout sessions conducted by multidisciplinary professionals enhance student learning and appreciation of the contributions of the team of professionals. A panel of elder specialists provides personal insight into how they have overcome and/or adapted to various health-related problems. Evaluation measures have indicated that students are benefiting from the program and that it is affecting their attitudes in a positive way toward caring for older adults. (Contains 3 tables.)
