Discontinued program description:

Scholars participated in 58 hours of core program components, including:
- Program Orientation
- Structured Interview
- Active Observation
- Teaching an In-Service
- Summer Geriatric Institute

12 or more hours of education or research were completed on relevant topics of Scholar's choice.
The Scholars Program was largely self-directed, with many core and elective activities guided by the Scholar’s preferences.
