YU-CARE offers several learning and professional development opportunities for students at all levels of studies.

Learning Opportunities

YU-CARE members have developed a Cross-Disciplinary Certificate in Aging for students at the 3000 and 4000 level in a program offered by the Faculty of Health. The Certificate, to be completed concurrent to a Health undergraduate degree, offers learning experiences from a range of disciplines (including Kinesiology and Health Science, Psychology, Sociology, etc.).

For more information on course content and enrollment in the Certificate in Aging, please visit the Faculty of Health's information page.

Research Opportunities

The YU-CARE Trainee network provides graduate students an opportunity to network with and be mentored by post-doctoral researchers studying aging from a variety of perspectives. Trainee students benefit from research events such as symposiums and workshops, as well as skills development sessions.

The Canadian Association on Gerontology - Student Connection offers resources for students who want to learn more about aging related research opportunities and events.
