USC Professional Students

GWEP Programs Overview


Interprofessional Geriatrics Curriculum (IPGC)

Teams of seven students from different health professional programs are paired with an older adult living in a low- income community housing complex. Students will meet on five half days during the academic year, including an introduction and program overview session, three visits at the older adult’s residence, and a wrap up session. Each team meeting with the older adult is facilitated by a faculty mentor and preceded by a brief academic lecture on a topic which is the focus of that day’s team visit.

Geriatrics Assessment Program (GAP) at USC/Health Sciences Campus (HCCII)

Once a week, for half a day the clinic is staffed by an interprofessional team of health professionals that provides comprehensive assessment for older adults with multiple medical problems. They focus on promoting function, supporting independence and increasing safety. Students may be assigned to the clinic in a manner that best works for that student’s program (i.e. one–time visit or four week rotation).
