About EuGMS

EuGMS is one of the partners of IMAGINE, and its mission is to develop geriatric medicine in Europe as an independent specialty that serves older people with age-related diseases; to support the availability of these services for all European citizens; to support the development of appropriate healthcare services for an aging population; and to promote education and continuous professional development.

EuGMS considers that the massive aging of populations has been one of the most significant achievements of the end of the second millennium. Aging has brought challenges in terms of a new order of complexity to ensure the health of aging populations. Geriatric medicine has been developed to address this challenge and has proven to be an effective and cost-effective development.
