‘G4J Connect’ is the name for regional seminars and teaching sessions that are based on the ‘Geriatrics for Juniors’ ethos. Alongside the annual ‘G4J’ conference, these events will provide educational activities which are ultimately designed to improve the standard of care for older patients.
We are working with AEME members around the UK to create events that will provide advice on clinical practice, information on the specialty, and help to overcome some of your med reg fears! Only requiring a few hours of your time, and usually organised in an evening or a half-day weekend session, they will be a valuable resource for any junior doctor who cares for older patients.

The ‘Geriatrics for Juniors’ ethos:
- To improve the standard of care for older patients through high quality educational events aimed at junior medical staff
- To deliver innovative presentations, delivered with an enthusiasm for the subject that can inspire a future generation of doctors.
- To promote the recruitment of junior doctors into Geriatrics by highlighting the positives associated with a career in the specialty, whilst challenging the stereotypes associated with it.
