Geriatrics Interest Group
Purpose: The purpose of the Geriatrics Interest Group (GIG) of the Florida State University College of Medicine (FSU COM) is to educate and promote geriatric medicine at the Florida State University (FSU). The GIG promotes the involvement of students and professionals from various disciplines concerned with the care of the geriatric community, with the purpose of enhancing the multiple dimensions of geriatric care. Therefore, membership and participation is open to all FSU students who are interested in geriatric medicine. Members of the GIG, also, have the opportunity to join the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) and the Florida Geriatrics Society (FGS), which provide additional opportunities for informative meetings and conferences to attend. The primary focus of the GIG activities is to meet the needs of the geriatric community through education, community outreach, and student-geriatric involvement.
