While global aging represents a triumph of medical, social, and economic advances over disease, it also presents tremendous challenges. Establishing a suitable welfare and long-term care system has become a pressing policy concern for governments around the world. King’s Institute of Gerontology is a world leading research and education centre on ageing and older people. The iBSc in Global Ageing, Health and Policy will enrich one’s medical education by offering a comprehensive perspective of how ageing affects individuals, families and governments, and how healthcare and social policies can contribute to healthy ageing worldwide. Students will be taught by world-renowned experts on the clinical and social dimensions of ageing, as well as the health and social care policies affecting ageing societies globally. This one-year programme comprises two 30-credit taught modules, two 15-credit taught modules and a 30-credit dissertation. Optional modules include principles of epidemiology and the biology of ageing.
