Social Work Practice in Health

Full-Time MSW Program Advanced Practice Field Unit
The Health unit provides practice experiences in health care settings that serve a myriad of patient populations and specialty areas. Students acquire skills in psychosocial assessment, resource coordination, and counseling. Collaboration as members of a multidisciplinary team, discharge planning, linking with community resources, patient education, and advocacy are some of the major tasks and functions performed by students. Supervised experience and dynamic learning in both the field setting and the integrative seminar creates opportunities for students to acquire and develop the knowledge, skills, ethics, and values essential to the role of working with clients in a health care setting. The primary objective of the field experience is to develop advanced practice skills. The primary goal of the integrative seminar is to broaden the relationship between academic course work and clinical experience.
