Students in this internship program increase their knowledge of geriatrics and gerontology and gain experience in applying research to programs for adults aged 50 years and older. The interns also collaborate with faculty and staff to develop a final project relating to the "10 Keys"™ of Healthy Aging—a program of preventtive strategies to help reduce, postpone, or eliminate the most significant causes of disease and disability among older adults.

Audience
The internship accepts undergraduate and graduate students (masters, DrPH, PhD, and MD) from any educational institution and from many fields of study; such as, biostatistics, business, community health, computer science, epidemiology, public health, exercise science, geriatrics, gerontology, health education, information sciences, marketing, communication, nutrition, political science, psychology, nursing, medicine, and sociology.

Duration
3 months (ranging from 40 hours a week to 2 hours per week) depending on the requirements of the student's academic institution.
