The Centre for Education and Research on Ageing (CERA) is Australia’s premier academic organization for the study of ageing and age-related diseases. Through innovative and multidisciplinary research, CERA aims to expand and share knowledge of human ageing, so that the health and quality of life of older people can be improved.

Our research is achieved through a broad program that incorporates clinical, laboratory, epidemiological and health service evaluation approaches. Allied to this are education programs, at basic and advanced levels of practice, in geriatric medicine and other education programs for aged care workers from a range of professional settings.

The teaching of geriatric medicine and associated disciplines within The University of Sydney's, Sydney Medical School continues to be one of CERA's core programs. Opportunities are available in a range of disciplines for Honours, Masters and PhD in all of CERA's Research areas. The training facilities on the Concord Hospital Campus range from laboratory-based research through applied clinical research to epidemiology and population-based studies.
