Welcome to the Interprofessional Graduate Certificate Program in Gerontology

An Interprofessional Graduate Certificate Program in Gerontology has been launched at the University of Maine.

The Interprofessional Graduate Certificate Program in Gerontology is designed to increase the knowledge, skills and abilities of health care and human service professionals who provide care to older adults in a variety of settings. The curriculum will meet the needs of working professionals who, because of the rapidly aging population, find themselves caring for a growing number of older adults.

(1) GRN 500 Opportunities and Challenges of Aging (3 cr.). Offered every fall semester.

(2) GRN 501 Life Transitions and Health in Aging (3 cr.). Offered every spring semester.

(3) GRN 502: Interprofessional Care of Older Adults in Diverse Settings (3 cr.). Offered every summer (7 week session).

An additional course is available for interested students:
