Sub-Specialties are now availableThe cases are available through www.geriatricscareonline.org, AGS’s product and publication platform, for free for the first 1,000 subscribers. 

The AGS’ Geriatrics Virtual Patient Case (VPC) Modules for Surgical and Related Medical Sub-Specialties project was developed by the AGS’ GSI and the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), and funded by The John A. Hartford Foundation.  It includes 9 virtual patient cases, each with video focused on “cross-cutting” geriatrics care topics developed to promote knowledge and competence in the delivery of quality surgical care of older adults. Through the use of multimedia, each case walks the participant through clinical tasks posing key challenges in caring for older patients.  The participant is provided with real-time feedback as they complete each case.  Both CME and MOC are available to those who successfully complete each case.
