The number of elderly in the population is increasing considerably, and by the mid-21st century the projected number will reach 80 million. Such a large increase places a great demand for experts in all allied health professions to be prepared to provide age-specific health care services to this cohort. This article introduces an alternative approach called modularization of gerontology courses, to include adequate and discipline-specific gerontologic education into the many and varied curricula of the allied health schools.
