The aim of the Academy for Research on Aging is to share knowledge about geriatrics and gerontology to students and professionals. Our courses are divided into three groups:

  1. In cooperation with the Medical University of Vienna, we will hold the course “Social Competence“. In this compulsory course, medical students are sensitized to an empathetic and human approach to geriatric patients.
  2. Chronisch Konkret: The aim of the event format is to enter into a structured professional dialogue with relevant stakeholders in order to enable the discussion of central topics in the field of chronic    diseases at regular intervals.
  3. As part of our “interdisciplinary training courses“, we are set to include a knowledge transfer between science and practitioners in the field of geriatrics and gerontology. Not only members of the association, but also external visitors are welcome to these training courses!
