Applications Being Accepted for Health and Aging Services Certificate

RELEASED: May 15, 2006

EAU CLAIRE — In response to the growing demand for leaders and managers in health and aging services, the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire has created a graduate certificate program that will help professionals develop new skills and competencies, meet the educational requirement for long-term care administration licensure, and learn from other health and aging services professionals.

Now in its third year, this ten-graduate-credit program begins in October 2006 and ends in December 2007. Three-day modules are held in Eau Claire in October, January, April and June. Learning continues through online interaction between modules. The capstone project allows participants to design and complete projects of their choice in a health care setting that applies acquired skills and knowledge. The modules include best practices, interactive and practical content facilitated by university professors and cutting edge consultants, including Pathway Health Services, Inc.; Wipfli; MRA-The Management Association, Inc.; and Zimmerman Communi-Care Network, Inc.

"Students in the certificate program broaden their perspectives through their contact with the professionals teaching each module and through the shared learning and experience with peers and the practicum students," said Craig Ubbelohde, CEO of Lutheran Homes of Oshkosh. "Sponsorship of a leadership team member in the certificate program is a sound investment."

To apply or for more information, contact Meredith Wolf at (715) 836-3543, e-mail wolfm@uwec.edu, or visit the Health Care Administration Web site.
