Abstract


Objective: To present the Postgraduate Program in Gerontology on a Masters degree, while being the pioneer course in North-Northeast on this field of study.
Method: to create the Program, the following steps were taken: 1. Survey on Aging and Postgraduate programs in the field of gerontology in Brazil; 2. Development of the Proposal of the Postgraduate Program in Gerontology at the Federal University of Pernambuco – PPGERO/UFPE. 
Results: Definition of the main subject of study – Gerontology; Research Guidelines – Aging and Health/Aging, Culture and Society; Course characterization – Master degree, annual screening, 14 vacancies, 30 credits, including 14 compulsory and 16 electives. Compulsory subjects – Aging, Health and Interdisciplinarity; Gerontology, Society and Culture; Methodology of Scientific Research in Gerontology; Research Seminars in Gerontology. Elective courses – Aging: Biological and Physiological Aspects; Demography and Epidemiology of Aging; Bioethics Applied to Gerontology; Advanced Seminars in Gerontology; Planning and Management of Elderly Care Services; Health Economics Fundamentals in the Heed of the Elderly; Cognition and Aging; Old Age, Power and Gender Relations.
