As the first wave of baby-boomers turns 65, there is a shortage of geriatricians trained to care for them.  Because of the shortage, an elderly patient will go to his or her specialists for most of their medical needs.  Unfortunately, most specialists are not trained to care for the geriatric patient. 

Understanding this, the Association of Specialty Professors (ASP) developed two initiatives to educate and prepare specialists to care for elderly patients.  Through the T. Franklin Williams Scholars Program and the Integrating Geriatrics into the Specialties of Internal Medicine projects, ASP aims to embed geriatrics and gerontology into the specialties of internal medicine.
