Description

Fulfills the Medical Board of California requirement of AB 1820 in Geriatric Medicine. The passage of AB 1820 (California Business and Professions Code section 2190.3) establishes the Geriatric Medical Training Act of 2000, which places certain requirements on physicians and the Medical Board of California. This bill requires sufficient course work and training in the field of geriatrics for medical students and physicians to ensure that every general internist and family physician has the requisite knowledge and skills to competently treat California's older population by the year 2010. General internists and family physicians who have a patient population of which over 25 percent of the patients are at least 65 years of age, are required to complete at least 20 percent of their mandatory CME in the field of geriatric medicine. All other physicians are encouraged to take a course in geriatric medicine, including geriatric pharmacology, as part of their mandatory CME.
