MEDICAL SPECIALTIES SECTION MEETING
- Time: 7:00am - 8:30am
- Track: Networking
- CME/CE: 0.0
Co-Chairs: Lauren Ferrante, MD, MHS & Una Makris, MD, MSc
The Medical Specialties Section was developed in 2002 by the Association of Specialty Professors project “Integrating Geriatrics into the Specialties of Internal Medicine: Moving Forward from Awareness to Action,” funded by The John A. Hartford Foundation and Atlantic Philanthropies, Inc.
The theme of the session this year is "The Urgency of Adaptation,” with a focus on adapting to challenges in one's career, whether it is a career transition, pandemic-related disruption, or other challenge. Our multidisciplinary panel of senior medical and surgical specialists will speak briefly on the topic and then lead a panel discussion, followed by small round table discussions with the individual speakers. Breakout sessions will be followed by a talk from a National Institute on Aging (NIA) program officer about funding opportunities. All medical and surgical subspecialists, including geriatricians, are encouraged to attend.
