Applications will be accepted from young, recently graduated, medical doctors who realise that the question of ageing – after eradicating child mortality and greatly reducing death during middle age – is the greatest challenge for the current generation of doctors.
Students come from various countries, as the problems are common to all successful societies. Students are looking to deepen their knowledge of ageing, to improve their basic medical skills and to develop themselves personally. Upon successful completion of the master’s degree, this will enable them to shape the future of medical care.
