NSU South Florida GWEP

The South Florida Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program (SFGWEP) located within Nova Southeastern University's Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine, is one of a national network of 59 Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Programs (GWEPs) funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration.

Facilitated by a consortium, the SFGWEP trains health professions students, faculty, and practitioners using an interprofessional team- and community-based approach, all while remaining sensitive to the unique needs of the ethnically and culturally diverse older adults we serve. A cornerstone of every GWEP is to encourage, enhance, and continually promote the profession of geriatrics to students at all levels of education. The SFGWEP's faculty and staff members realize that students must be involved in working with older adults to understand and appreciate the reward of a career in geriatrics.
