Standardized Geriatric Emergency Medicine Curriculum for Undergraduate Medical Education
Dr. Li and Dr. Liu led the creation of this wonderful educational resource. Through the work of leaders across North
America, the Geriatric Emergency Medicine CDEM work is a convenient reference for medical students to
use either on shift or afterwards. The various chapters were written by established and up and coming GEM
leaders and is an excellent introduction to better caring for this vulnerable population.
