Saskatoon has three Geriatric Medicine specialists.
They share their clinical work with four family physicians in Saskatoon at the Geriatric Evaluation and Management (GEM) program. The GEM physicians work with a full interdisciplinary team to provide home visits, outpatient clinics, and consult services to all three Saskatoon hospitals, as well as day hospital for frail older adults.
In addition to providing comprehensive geriatric assessment and management, a key priority for the GEM program is education on geriatric core competencies to undergraduate students as well as practicing physicians.
