This programme aims to respond to social needs and market needs arising from the increasing numbers of elderly persons with disabilities who require special gerontological services, and from the evolution of the geriatric sector, which means constantly adapting to advances in knowledge, new technologies, and organisational and social change.

Career opportunities

- This programme adds to the professional competences of those who work in a gerontological centre (in medicine, nursing, psychology, social work, physiotherapy, social education, occupational therapy, etc.).
