The Collaborative Program in Aging, Palliative & Supportive Care across the Life Course

The Collaborative Program prepares students for specialization in the field of aging,an/or the field of palliative and supportive care, with an emphasis on viewing aging and palliative and supportive care issues within the perspective of the life course. As of September 2006, the Collaborative Program offers students two options of study:

  • aging and the life course
  • palliative and supportive care


Students must apply to and register in a home participating unit (i.e., one of the graduate departments, faculties, or institutes listed below), and follow a course of study acceptable to both that unit and the Collaborative Program in Aging, Palliative and Supportive Care across the Life Course.
