Prof. Dr. Maria Cristina Polidori is co-editor of the new textbook: Learning Geriatric Medicine. Roller-Wirnsberger RE, Singler K, Polidori MC Editors. Springer 2018.
This textbook presents hands-on training material for medical students. The style reflects the need for practice-based teaching with a modern edge in daily clinical routine; accordingly, it also employs online material and pocket cards. Each chapter begins with specific learning objectives, which are cross-referenced with the European curriculum for undergraduate medical education released by the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) together with the European Union Geriatric Medicine Society (EUGMS), as well as the minimum geriatric competences for medical students established by the American Geriatrics Society (AGS).
