GEMS is offered as a basic Core course and an Advanced course. Both courses are appropriate for EMTs, paramedics, emergency medical responders, nurses, physician assistants and physicians. The 8-hour courses enhance the competence, confidence and compassion of EMS practitioners in responding to geriatric patients.
