GIG – Geriatric Medicine Interest Group


President Carson Tougas
Treasurer Alejandra Osorio

Welcome to the Geriatric Medicine Interest Group!

The Geriatric Medicine Interest Group (GIG) is dedicated to educating students about the specialty of geriatric medicine, and to enabling future healthcare providers of all potential career paths to provide the best possible care for their patients. By raising awareness of the special considerations for our elder patient population, our goal is to improve their health, independence, and quality of life. In pursuit of these goals we will organize panels, presentations, and facilitated group discussions led by practicing geriatricians and other professionals. The GIG will connect students with opportunities to contribute to research in geriatric medicine, shadow experts in the field, and serve the Gainesville community through collaboration with local eldercare resources.
