Helping medical students prepare for careers in the field of
gerontology, Dr. Jim Pacala, Dean of the University of Minnesota Medical
School, introduces these eager clinicians to the world of their
patients. In The Aging Game, the students become patients,
young become old, and these doctors-in-training see meal-time in the
nursing home from the other end of the spoon. An accompanying guidebook
is being written by Dr. Pacala and other faculty members.
