The Need for Aging and Health Care Professionals
As the aging population increases, so too does the need for well-trained health professionals, service providers, planners and policy workers who understand the unique issues of the older adult. That is why SHP has created a certificate program specifically to meet the need for more health care professionals in this field. In our fully online Certificate in Applied Gerontology, the student will gain a strong foundation in specialized courses in aging and health and administration.
Graduates of this rewarding field can make an impact working directly with older adults, influencing elder health care policy and challenging stereotypes related to the aging population.
- Graduate certificate (15 credits)- The 15-credit Graduate Certificate in Applied Gerontology is shorter than the master’s program and is designed for working health care professionals who want to develop or expand their skill set to work with the aging population.
