The new Residency Corner will feature articles written by residents that describe topics such as in-depth case analysis, problem solving, and practice as nonphysician primary care providers. Here residents will get to discuss their findings and thought-processes with an audience of their peers--those clinicians and academics interested in the advancement of geriatric health care. Also, for those who may be interested to see what geriatric residency education is really all about, these clinical snapshots can help remove the veil and provide a glimpse into the level of practice our residents are experiencing. Yet, this is only one half of the equation. What’s missing? The Residency Director, Coordinator, and Faculty points of view. While residents have been sounding off on their accomplishments and challenges, we would like to extend the offer to current residency directors to chronicle their successes and offer pearls of knowledge to anyone interested in starting a residency program.
