Chief Resident Immersion Training (CRIT) Program
The retreat program includes an unfolding interactive case divided into three modules following a geriatric patient from presentation in the clinic to the emergency department to discharge. Social events are also planned to foster relationships across specialties. Meals together, a cocktail hour and a constant changing of the participants in workgroups allow everyone to become familiar with one another.
Developed at Boston University Medical Center (BUMC), the Chief Resident Immersion Training (CRIT) Program improves Chief Resident's leadership and teaching skills and the coordination of care for elder patients. The program focuses on Chief Residents because of the key roles 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.
If you are a Chief Resident or faculty who is responsible for residency training in surgical and medical specialties, we invite you to join us in collaborating among disciplines in the management of medically complex older patients. This is FREE event to be held at the reknowned French Lick Springs Resort in French Lick, IN on Saturday, June 7th - Sunday, June 8, 2014. REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS APRIL 18, 2014.
Chief residents completing CRIT will emerge with new knowledge and skills in the care of older adults, increased ability to teach about geriatrics and improved leadership techniques required in their new roles. CRIT reinforces the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration in caring for older adults.
