Does anyone have any suggestion on resources that would be helpful for a geriatric fellowship? Texts, CMEs, articles, review books, etc. Going back to fellowship after being an attending and just looking for any recommendations. Thanks.

Also have a look at:

The Mental Status Examination in Neurology
The Clinical Manual of ECT
The APP Textbook of Geriatric Psychiatry (infinitely better than the APA's Textbook of Psychiatry though still lacking in the rarer dementias)
