Carver College of Medicine, is presented online as a series of monthly lectures. Each lecture can be viewed for one month and is accessible exclusively during the month it is scheduled.

The series is devoted to topics in clinical geriatrics designed to teach important principles in the management of older adults.

Because of grant funding by the Bureau of Health Workforce of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, registration to view the Geriatric Lecture Series is being offered at no cost to all to participants for this year only.
