Founded in 2007, the School of Gerontology and Health Management, former School of Geriatric Nursing and Care Management, was established under College of Nursing to respond effectively to the needs of an aging population. As a pioneer educational program, our curriculum is developed at equipping future professionals with specific knowledge and skills in the field of aging necessary to sustain or improve older adults’ quality of life.
Our curricular framework is designed to manage older adults’ life from a continuing care aspect including life style management, needs management, care management, and long-term care. With its affiliated medical centers such as hospitals,community health centers, senior centers, and long-term care centers, students are offered a variety of learning arenas in addition to class room setting.
We have a group of multidisciplinary faculty memberswho study the human life by exploring the biological, psychological, sociological, and medical dimensions of adult life. We also expand international cooperation with the world’s top universities, such as the Griffith University in Australia, and the Tohoku Fukushi University in Japan. As a newly developed school rooted in a traditional Medical University, together with our faculties and students we can influence older adults’ health locally, nationally, and internationally.
By the way, we have established Gerontology Health Management Master degree Program since 2018.
