More than a master’s program …

our students are the future of geriatric patient care. At UF Aging Online, our mission is to create a workforce that will better care for the older adult population.

Online Graduate Programs in Gerontology

The number of Americans ages 65 and older is projected to reach 77 million by the year 2034, and within two decades, seniors will outnumber children for the first time in U.S. history. There is a growing call for gerontologists and geriatricians that is going unanswered.  

Be a part of the solution to this major problem facing the healthcare landscape with an online master’s degree in gerontology or graduate certificate in aging and geriatric practice from the University of Florida College of Medicine.

Practical education is a must in this changing health care job environment. Opportunities continue to become available for qualified individuals in elder care. Gain credentials that will allow you to further your career through our online educational programs.

Benefits of UF’s online gerontology graduate program include:

  • Interactive, asynchronous courses taught by leading doctors and researchers
  • Flexible schedules tailored for working professionals
