The need for health care social workers is projected to grow over the next decade, and the next generation of leaders require the right training and preparation to be successful. Social workers serve a critical role in delivering health services, helping people access care, reducing health disparities, and advocating for policy innovations. In this presentation, faculty from the Social Work Healthcare Education and Leadership Scholars (HEALS) program will share best practices for training emerging leaders and seasoned professionals in practice and educational settings. They will provide examples and recommendations for training opportunities that address working in teams, health equity, leadership, integrated behavioral health, and advocacy.
