Clinical Skills in Health Professions Digital Credential

The digital credential provides pre-health students in a variety of majors with a way to demonstrate substantive healthcare workforce experience. Healthcare professions (ranging from professions that require an Associates degree to those requiring post-baccalaureate degrees as in medicine or dentistry) are among the fastest growing sector of the job market in our region. Most, if not all, healthcare professions require that successful job applicants have some clinical/laboratory/work or research experience. At UofL, we capitalize on our resources at the HSC and leverage connections with UofL Health, Norton Pediatrics, the Health Equity Hub, the School of Public Health, the School of Medicine, and the School of Dentistry to identify relevant opportunities for students to gain skills needed in the healthcare workforce.  To earn the digital credential, students complete nine credits related to healthcare workforce skill and career building.
