The UMMS CRIT program focuses on providing chief residents with a combination of training focused on improving Chief Residents’ understanding of geriatrics principles and their leadership and teaching skills. The focus is on Chief Residents because of the key roles that they play in the quality of patient care, medical student and resident training, mediating between faculty, nursing staff and residents, and communicating with patients and families.
The University of Massachusetts Medical School is offering its second annual Chief Resident Immersion Training (CRIT): In the Care of Older Adults in spring 2011. Drawing on medical school faculty as hosts and teachers, the UMMS format includes small group discussions, mini-lectures, and individual mentoring sessions toward each chief resident developing his or her own “action plan” to implement in their respective departments during the 2011-2012 academic year.
