Education Opportunities

Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and related Disabilities

The Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and related Disabilities training program, also known as LEND, for future healthcare leaders is funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau. The major goal of this project is to promote the health status of children (and their families) with neurodevelopmental and related disabilities by training healthcare professionals for leadership roles, collaboration with other agencies, and participation in policy development on health care.

Summer Internship Program

Held every summer, the University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Summer Internship Program provides opportunities for high school or early college students to gain experience in the disability field, develop transferable skills, and learn about various career paths in health care.

Internships and field experiences

College and graduate-level students work in a variety of settings and programs for internships and field experiences. These project-based openings provide an opportunity for students to apply knowledge and skills to tangible activities, as well as gain experience in a professional environment.

Continuing education

These Continuing Education Credit events and programs are available to professionals in a variety of specialties seeking knowledge and skills to improve their ability to provide care and services for people with disabilities, and their families.
