Research Training in Aging and Human Development

The Postdoctoral Research Training Program

The Postdoctoral Research Training Program is a 2-year program for PhDs and MDs and combines research in the trainee’s field of interest with multidisciplinary training in gerontology. Each trainee is matched with one of the center’s senior researchers, who supervises his or her research and provides a career model. Didactic training is based on a series of readings and group seminars. Trainees routinely go on to excellent positions in aging research, including research posts at the National Institute on Aging.

Undergraduate Program in Human Development

The Undergraduate Certificate in Human Development was one of the early interdisciplinary certificates that has remained relevant to students interested in a wide variety of majors and careers: medicine, law, business, sociology, psychology, biology to name a few. The goal of this certificate program is to present a biopsychosocial perspective on the processes of growth and development across the entire life course. The certificate includes the opportunity for one-on-one mentoring in human development research (based either in Trinity College or Duke Medical Center) as well as a Capstone Senior Seminar that centers around a group research project on a self-selected topic.
