About us


Older adults throughout Wisconsin will achieve optimal personal health and have access to quality healthcare, provided by a workforce that is proficient in state-of-the-art geriatric care.


Educate Wisconsin's current and future healthcare workforce about geriatrics and gerontology.

The Wisconsin Geriatric Education Center (WGEC) is a statewide consortium focused on optimizing the health of older adults and building the capacity of the healthcare workforce to meet the complex health needs of geriatric patients. Together, the WGEC consortium develops, implements, and evaluates new curriculum and delivers training to providers, faculty, and students in the health professions.

The WGEC is administratively housed on Marquette University's campus in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Center's administration and current projects are made possible by a grant from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to Marquette University's College of Nursing.
