Showcase your leadership

Each year at the annual Center for Health Administration and Aging Services Excellence (CHAASE) Spring Banquet, each of the HCAD residency students present on one of their three leadership projects. These projects fall into three categories: Internal Operations, External Relationships, Customer Service and Innovative. The students demonstrate via posters how they selected a challenge to tackle at their site, planned the measuring and implementation of their project, led their team throughout the project, and developed recommendations for future success.

Below, we've included samples of leadership project posters for each category including Internal Operations, External Relationships, Customer Service and Innovative. The posters shown here are the past year's winners to give you a taste of the great work HCAD students do every day at their residency sites to enhance the delivery of care and quality of life for residents. For additional student leadership projects, check out our Facebook page.
