Students

The Wyoming Center on Aging has numerous opportunities for students:
  • Clinical training and interships in geriatrics and gerontology (around the region)

  • Opportunities to engage and learn about innovative aging services

  • Community program immersion opportunites

  • Minor in Aging Studies: The field of geriatric health offers opportunities in traditional health care settings and in new settings as the aging baby boomers redefine “geriatric care.”  Consider the variety of professionals needed to design and create alternative community living environments.  Imagine the excitement of being involved in wellness and preventative geriatric programs such as healthy nutrition for older adults or exercise for improved quality of life.  Whether your interest is in hospital care, residential care, or as-yet undefined allied health care, a minor in aging studies will compliment your major.  The Minor is open to all UW Students and is a unique interprofessional experience through the College of Health Sciences.  For more information on the aging studies minor please click here or email ccarrico@uwyo.edu

  • Aspire to Geriatrics Program The Wyoming Center on Aging is proud to announce the launch of the first interprofessional Aspire! program - Aspire to Geriatrics! Students selected to participate in this program will be given many opportunities to develop their knowledge of aging and geriatric healthcare. Opportunities will include a lunch and learn series with leaders in geriatrics in Wyoming, as well as networking, funded travel, and conference attendance.  There are also benefits such as priority registration and recognition at graduation.
