This interactive pre-conference will provide participants with essential knowledge and leadership skills to successfully manage their geriatrics programs and grow in the field.  

This session is focused on making the business case for geriatrics and will start with an overview of the external disrupters that are reshaping the current health care environment in ways that impact academic geriatrics programs. This overview will be followed by presentations addressing the impact of Medicare Advantage contracts on geriatrics academic divisions. Following these presentations, there will be an opportunity for a roundtable discussion and to share what attendees are seeing at their own institutions. During the latter half of the session, speakers will share their perspectives, successes, and lessons learned in making the business case for geriatrics within their own institutions. A second roundtable discussion is planned for attendees to share their own learnings about making the business case with the goal of identifying successful strategies. Considering this is a business-related session, Program Administrators are also encouraged to participate. Learning Objectives: (1) identify the external disrupters that are reshaping the current health care environment; (2) describe the impact of Medicare Advantage contracts on geriatrics academic divisions; and (3) utilize strategies learned to develop the business case for geriatrics at their own institutions.
