Abstract

Long-term effects of a seminar on aging and health for first-year medical students were assessed prior to graduation from medical school. Seminar students held more positive attitudes toward the elderly than did classmates in a control group. Analysis of questionnaire responses suggests that seminar students perceived contacts with elderly patients in a more complex manner than did their classmates. The authors conclude that geriatric education in behavioral science may have lasting effects on the attitudes and behavior of medical students.
