   In the coming decades, the number of older adults in your ED will more than double...are you ready?

Founded in 2009, the Academy of Geriatric Emergency Medicine (AGEM) provides a forum for the collaborative exchange of ideas among emergency medicine researchers, educators, trainees, and clinicians. 


AGEM can help you:

  •  Improve your clinical care of older patients
    • Learn about The Geriatric ED Guidelines initiative (a collaboration between SAEM, ACEP, ENA, and AGS), which covers resources, staffing, environment, and policies for Geriatric EDs
  •  Prepare your trainees to care for older patients through our educational materials:
    • Lectures, training curricula, and simulation cases available
    • Geriatric EM Journal Club: Modeled after the highly successful ACP Journal Club, it provides expert review and commentary on articles critical to geriatric EM
    • Connect with AGEM members available to give grand rounds talks
  • Advance your research agenda
    • Connect with AGEM investigators (NIH and foundation-funded, including 8 with K23 grants)
    • Receive mentoring and counseling (for junior and mid-career investigator members of AGEM)
