Expert Witness

GREAT Seminars lecturers are leaders and experts in the field of geriatrics and can serve as expert witnesses in cases involving geriatric rehabilitation.

Geriatric trained and certified therapists (GTCCS) after having worked in the field of geriatrics as a practicing clinician have passed a rigorous process that tests and validates their expertise. All GTCCS must complete 160 hours of coursework specifically in geriatrics. After completing that they can apply for a home study that takes a minimum of ten hours in dissecting and demonstrating competency on a variety of real life cases. Then the candidates must prove their competence during a 30 hour review and testing procedure. The entire process is a minimum of 200 hours. Visit These GTCCS’s are also leaders and experts in the field of geriatrics and as such can serve as expert witnesses in cases involving geriatric rehabilitation.

To that end, Great Seminars offers attorneys the opportunity to hire consultants to work directly with their staffs. Below are the details.

Expert Witnessing consulting services are as follows:

All consultants will need travel and accommodations paid, if needed. Great Seminars charges a $200 set up fee to coordinate the facility and the consultants. The consultant’s fee depends on the level of the consultant and area of expertise.
