This is particularly true when considering the preparation of a health care workforce for the field of geriatrics. An Interdisciplinary Geriatric Education Center (IGEC) is an innovative, deliberate, institutional strategy to prepare and deliver an effective healthcare workforce for the future geriatric population. The model and processes for the implementation of such a center are presented.
