iSAGE Training Program details

Part 1 of iSAGE will immerse participants in the over arching scientific principles of successful aging and end of life care.
Part 2 will focus on quality care of multicultural older Americans.
Part 3 will be a scholarly project, which will include mentored field work during which the participant will complete a mini-dissertation in the area of their interest and submit a final report to be graded by experts. The scholarly project should be specifically designed to positively impact at least five older Americans in some small and specific way. The course director will mentor mini-fellows on choice of the scholarly project. Mini-fellows are encouraged to collaborate with their peers in the iSAGE program in completing their field work.
