The bill creates the Colorado multidisciplinary geriatric provider
pipeline program (program) in the university of Colorado Anschutz
medical campus. The program coordinates and expands geriatric training

opportunities for clinical graduate students enrolled in participating
institutions of higher education who study in the health-care fields of
medicine, medicine with a focus on training to be a physician assistant,
dentistry, pharmacy, nursing, psychology, and social work.
The bill creates the geriatric training executive advisory committee
(committee) to ensure that the training for the program is consistent and
collaborative across the health-care fields of study. The committee is
required to:
  • Set the program's standards for training and delivery of
medical care to the most frail and medically complex,
costly, and compromised older Coloradans;
  • Collaborate with participating institutions of higher
education across Colorado to select clinical graduate
students who have an interest in geriatric care to participate
in the program;
  • Analyze data collected by the program;
  • Build relationships, collaborate, and create a
multidisciplinary team that provides opportunities for
clinicians to work together in teams to better understand
the roles of each discipline and better place clinical
graduate students for experiential training opportunities;
  • Coordinate with graduates of the program for opportunities
to become trainers to future clinical graduate students once
practicing in the graduate's field of study.
