For the past 39 years, the UCLA Intensive Course in Geriatric Medicine has been a leader in providing physicians, pharmacists and other health professionals the essential knowledge and skills to care for older patients. The four-day course and board review in geriatric medicine emphasizes an evidence-based, practical and functional approach to the comprehensive care of older adults.

This program has been designed for geriatricians, internists, primary care and family medicine clinicians, hospitalists and intensivists, pharmacists, and other interested healthcare providers.

The FDA has issued a concept paper that classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is “truly independent” and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that non-promotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program’s participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy mandates that the provider adequately manage all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. UCLA fully endorses the letter and spirit of these concepts.
